Men's Floor Exercise

Gymnastics at the 1976 Summer Games: Previous Summer Games ▪ Next Summer Games


Host City: Montréal, Canada
Venue(s): Montréal Forum, Montréal, Québec
Date Started: July 18, 1976
Date Finished: July 23, 1976

Gold: URS Nikolay Andrianov
Silver: URS Vladimir Marchenko
Bronze: USA Peter Kormann


The format was similar to 1964-72, with the best six gymnasts in the team all-around advancing to the apparatus final, with the final apparatus score made up of 50% of the all-around total and a final optional program. However, nations were now limited to only two gymnasts in the finals. Soviet [Nikolay Andrianov] was the defending champion and won the gold medal narrowly over his teamate [Vladimir Marchenko]. Andrianov won seven medals in Montréal, including individual all-around gold and three apparatus golds, adding golds on vault and rings. The bronze medal went to American [Peter Kormann] in a huge upset. His only previous international experience had come at the 1975 Pan American Games. His medal was the first won by a US male gymnast since 1932 and only the second won by an American at a non-USA Olympics, after [Frank Kriz]’s gold medal on vault in 1924.
