Men's Floor Exercise

Gymnastics at the 1980 Summer Games: Previous Summer Games ▪ Next Summer Games


Host City: Moskva, Soviet Union
Venue(s): Palace of Sports, Central Lenin Stadium Area, Moskva
Date Started: July 20, 1980
Date Finished: July 25, 1980

Gold: GDR Roland Brückner
Silver: URS Nikolay Andrianov
Bronze: URS Aleksandr Dityatin


The format was the same as in 1976, with the best six gymnasts in the team all-around advancing to the apparatus final, but only two gymnasts from each nation could advance to the finals. The final apparatus score made up of 50% of the all-around total and a final optional program. Soviet Nikolay Andrianov was the defending champion, but the 1978-79 World Champion had been American [Kurt Thomas], who could not compete because of the USA-led boycott. In 1979 Thomas had shared the World title with East German [Roland Brückner], who took the gold medal in Moskva, followed by Andrianov and his teammate [Aleksandr Dityatin]. The floor exercise always ends the apparatus finals, and with his bronze medal, Dityatin became the first Olympic athlete to win eight medals at one Olympic Games, as he won three gold, four silver, and one bronze.
