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: BUL Stoyan Delchev
Silver: URS Aleksandr Dityatin
Bronze: URS Nikolay Andrianov


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. American [Kurt Thomas] had won this event at the 1979 World Championships, but was not in Moskva because of the USA-led boycott. In his absence the gold medal was won by Bulgarian [Stoyan Delchev], who had the highest score in team qualifying and the final round, and became the first Bulgarian to win an Olympic gymnastics gold medal. He was followed by the two Soviet giants, [Aleksandr Dityatin] and [Nikolay Andrianov]. In sixth place was [Casimiro Suárez], who became the first Cuban ever to make a gymnastics apparatus final at the Olympics.
