Individual All-Around, Women

Date27 August – 1 September 1972
StatusOlympic
LocationSporthalle, Olympiapark, München
Participants118 from 23 countries

The individual all-around had a new format in 1972. The team all-around was contested first, with the top 36 finishers from that event advancing to the individual all-around final. The total score consisted of 50% of the team all-around score and the performances on all four apparatuses in the individual final. The favorite was the top Soviet Lyudmila Turishcheva, who had won the 1970 World Championships. She led the qualifying in the team competition, tied with East German Karin Janz. But in third place was a small unknown Soviet pixie named Olga Korbut. Korbut’s routines, especially on the uneven bars, were revolutionary and heralded a new era in women’s gymnastics and she quickly became the crowd favorite. Unfortunately, in the final round, Korbut fell off the uneven bars twice and scuffed her feet on a mount. She scored only 7.5 for the routine and dropped back to seventh place overall, as Turishcheva won the gold medal over Janz, with Soviet Tamara Lazakovich winning the bronze medal. Over the next few years, Turishcheva would defeat Korbut at every international event, but could never match her popularity.
