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. Japan’s dominance in this event was virtually complete, as they took the top five places. Mitsuo Tsukahara won the gold medal with the highest score in team all-around qualifying and in the final round. All-around champion Sawao Kato took the silver medal. The 1970 World Champion was Eizo Kenmotsu, who just missed a medal in fourth place, behind teammate Shigeru Kasamatsu. In 1976, Tsukahara would defend his gold medal, repeating the feat of his countryman Takashi Ono in 1956-60. The only non-Japanese gymnast to make the final was Soviet Nikolay Andrianov, who placed sixth.
