Date18 – 23 July 1976 — 19:30
StatusOlympic
LocationLe Forum de Montréal, Montréal, Québec
Participants90 from 20 countries

The format was similar to 1964-72, 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. However, nations were now limited to only two gymnasts in the finals. Japan’s Sawao Kato had won the gold medal on parallel bars at München in 1972. In Montréal Kato had the highest score in qualifying and the final round to become the first gymnast to win back-to-back gold medals on parallel bars. Silver went to Soviet gymnast Nikolay Andrianov and bronze to Kao’s teammate Mitsuo Tsukahara. Kato had won the individual all-around in 1968 and 1972. This was his only apparatus medal in Montréal, ending his Olympic career with 12 medals and 8 gold medals.
