Men's Pommelled Horse

Gymnastics at the 1992 Summer Games: Previous Summer Games ▪ Next Summer Games


Host City: Barcelona, Spain
Venue(s): St. George's Palace, Barcelona
Date Started: July 29, 1992
Date Finished: August 2, 1992

Gold: EUN Vitaly Shcherbo
PRK Pae Gil-Su
Bronze: GER Andreas Wecker


Eight gymnasts advanced to the final round based on the qualifying scores in the team all-around, but the final placements were determined only by the score posted in the final round. The event was considered wide open as nobody had dominated it in recent years. The gold medal was shared by [Vitaly Shcherbo], one of his six gold medals in Barcelona, and North Korean [Pae Gil-Su], who was completely unknown until 1992. However, Pae would win the World Championships on the pommelled horse in both 1992 (individual event) and 1993, before dropping out of competition for three years. He came back in 1996 and won the individual event World Championships, before placing 13th at the Atlanta Olympics. Barcelona was the third consecutive Olympics at which the gold medal in this event was shared.
