Women had competed in team all-around in 1928, 1936, and 1948, but this was the first appearance for the Soviet Union, which dominated the competition and won the gold medal easily. At the 1950 World Championships, the medals went, in order, to Sweden, France, and Italy, but the best they could do in Helsinki was a fourth-place by Sweden, as Hungary won silver and Czechoslovakia bronze. Although this was the first Soviet title in this event, they would, effectively, never lose it. Soviet women gymnasts won the team all-around at eight consecutive Olympics – 1952-80, failing only in 1984 when the Soviets boycotted the Los Angeles Olympics. They would then return in 1988 and win again, and as the Unified Team, won again in 1992, before the Soviets split up into their respective republics.
