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. East Germany’s [Maxi Gnauck] had shared the 1979 World Championship title with China’s Ma Yanhong, but the Chinese did not compete at Moskva. In her absence, Gnauck won the 1980 Olympic gold medal because of her leading score in qualifying. In the final round, five of the six gymnasts scored 9.90, as did Gnauck, with silver going to Romanian [Emilia Eberle], and the bronze shared by three gymnasts – Soviet [Mariya Filatova], Romanian [Melita Rühn], and East German [Steffi Kräker].
