Date Finished: July 25, 1980

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. [Nikolay Andrianov] was the defending gold medalist and had won silver medals on vault at the 1978-79 World Championships. Andrianov led after the team qualifying with 19.80 and defended his gold medal, with the highest final round score, although it was equalled by his teammate, [Aleksandr Dityatin], the 1979 World Champion, who won silver. Bronze went to East German [Roland Brückner], who won three apparatus medals in Moskva, with bronze here and on vault and a gold medal in the floor exercise.
