Participants83 from 24 countries
FormatCompulsory and optional exercise performed on all four apparatuses.

Larysa Latynina had won this event in 1956 and 1960 and at the 1962 World Championships. She came into Tokyo with 12 Olympic medals, an Olympic record for women, trailing only Italian fencer Edoardo Mangiarrotti, who had won 13 from 1936-60. Latynina was expected to win but she had a challenger in Czechoslovak Věra Čáslavská, who had been runner-up at the 1962 Worlds. Čáslavská won the gold medal in Tokyo in a mild upset, and had a comfortable margin over Latynina, 0.566 points. Čáslavská would also win this event at the 1966 World Championships and again in 1968, at Mexico City. Latynina’s teammate, Polina Astakhova, won the bronze medal, as she had in Rome.

Latynina would win medals in all six women’s events in Tokyo, giving her a lifetime total of 18, which would remain an absolute Olympic record until it was bettered at London in 2012 by American swimmer Michael Phelps, who finished that Olympics with 22.
