Horse Vault, Men

Date27 August – 1 September 1972 — 19:30
StatusOlympic
LocationSporthalle, Olympiapark, München
Participants111 from 26 countries

The format was similar to 1964 and 1968, with the best six gymnasts in the team all-around advancing to the apparatus final, with the final apparatus score made up of 50% of the all-around total and a final optional program. The German Democratic Republic (East Germany) had never won an individual gold medal in men’s gymnastics, but that drought ended in this event with Klaus Köste taking gold. Köste’s gold was also the only individual men’s gymnastics medal in München not won by the Japanese or the Soviets. Köste was trailed by two Soviets, with Viktor Klimenko, the 1970 World Championship silver medalist, also winning silver here, and Nikolay Andrianov bronze. Andrianov would improve in 1976 and win the gold medal on the vault.
