Parallel Bars, Men

Date5 – 10 September 1960 — 08:00-17:00
StatusOlympic
LocationTerme di Caracalla, Roma
Participants129 from 28 countries

As with all apparatus formats in 1960, this was a new format, with the all-around competition serving as a qualifying round for the final, with the top six performers advancing to the final round, where they again performed a compulsory and optional exercise to determine final placements. The shock in this event was not that Borys Shakhlin, the 1958 World Champion, won the gold medal and Takashi Ono the bronze medal, as they were the dominant male gymnasts in Rome, but that the silver went to Italian Giovanni Carminucci. It was one of only two individual medals won by Italian gymnasts in Rome, the other going to Franco Menichelli on floor exercise. Carminucci’s brother, Pasquale, also competed on the Italian gymnastic team in Rome. There is some internet information out there that the two were Siamese twins, but that is certainly false as they were born two years apart.
