StatusOlympic
LocationSporthalle, Olympiapark, München
Participants118 from 23 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. Soviet Lyudmila Turishcheva won this event at the 1970 World Championships and took the lead in München after the team all-around qualifying. However she dropped to the silver medal when her teammate, Olga Korbut, wowed the crowd and the judges with her final routine and moved up to the gold medal. Turishcheva would again win this event at the 1974 World Championships, where Korbut placed second, and won a silver medal at Montréal in 1976.
