Horse Vault, Men

Date16 – 25 September 2000
StatusOlympic
LocationSydney SuperDome, Olympic Park, Sydney, New South Wales
Participants80 from 31 countries

The format was the same as it had been from 1984-96, with eight gymnasts advancing from the team all-around, but no more than two per nation. Spain’s Gervasio Deferr had no significant international results on vault prior to the Sydney Olympics, but in the final of the vault, he hit both his landings to win the gold medal with a big margin over Russian Aleksey Bondarenko. Deferr would go another four years and still not post any big wins on vault, but in Athinai he defended his gold medal, only the second time this had been done, after China’s Lou Yun in 1984-88. Deferr’s medal in Sydney was the first ever won by a Spanish gymnast at the Olympics.
