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. [Zoltán Magyar] (HUN) had won the gold medal in 1976 and 1980, but retired after the Moskva Olympics. The gold medal in Los Angeles was shared by China’s [Li Ning] and American [Peter Vidmar], who had been second in the individual all-around, in which Ning placed third. Bronze went to Vidmar’s teammate [Tim Daggett], both of whom attended UCLA and competed at Pauley Pavilion, which hosted the 1984 Olympic gymnastics competition.
