There was a slight change in the format of the apparatus events in 1984 as eight gymnasts (previously six) qualified for the final round from the team qualifying, still with a maximum of two gymnasts per team. The gold medal in this event was historic as Japan’s [Shinji Morisue] won with a perfect 20.0, scoring two perfect 10s in the team qualifying, and then a perfect 10 in the final round. At the modern Games (post-WW2), the only other times this happened on the 20-point scoring system was by Romania’s [Nadia Comăneci] in 1976 on uneven bars, and Romania’s [Daniela Silivaş] in 1988 on the uneven bars, making Morisue the only man to accomplish this at the Olympic Games. Morisue was trailed by China’s [Tong Fei] and [Koji Gushiken], Morisue’s teammate.
