Participants62 from 16 countries

The format was the same as in 1976, with the best six gymnasts in the team all-around advancing to the apparatus final, but only two gymnasts from each nation could advance to the finals. The final apparatus score made up of 50% of the all-around total and a final optional program. Nataliya Shaposhnikova (URS) was the best “unknown” gymnast at the 1980 Olympics. She won four medals, with golds in this event and in the team all-around, adding bronzes on floor and the beam. Shaposhnikova placed fourth in the all-around, and on the uneven bars, she was third in qualifying, but could not make the final when the two ahead of her were Soviet teammates. The leaders after team qualifying were East Germans Steffi Kräker and Maxi Gnauck, and Romanian Nadia Comăneci. But Comăneci and Gnauck struggled in the final and placed fifth and sixth, respectively. Kräker won the silver medal followed by Romanian Melita Rühn.
