Team All-Around, Women

Date21 – 23 October 1968 — 08:30-17:00
StatusOlympic
LocationAuditorio Nacional, Ciudad de México
Participants82 from 14 countries
FormatSix-person teams. Each gymnast to perform a compulsory and an optional exercise on all four apparatuses. Top five scores per team on each of the eight exercises count towards the team score.

As at every Olympics from 1952-92, save for the 1984 boycott year, the Soviet Union won the gold medal in this event, although by edging out Czechoslovakia by only 0.65 points, this was their closest victory until 1992, when they competed as the Unified Team. Czechoslovakia had defeated the Soviets at the 1966 World Championships. Czechoslovakia was led both in 1966 and 1968 by Věra Čáslavská, who was the dominant gymnast in Mexico City, winning medals in all six events and four gold medals, including the individual all-around. The team bronze went to the German Democratic Republic (East Germany).
