Format of Competition

All participating gymnasts, including those who were not part of a team, participated in a qualification round, which also served as the team final. This year, the first round was split into two days of competition, where vault and uneven bars were competed on the first day, and balance beam and floor exercise on the second day. Four gymnasts per team were permitted to go up per apparatus, with the highest three scores counting towards the team score. The combined results over two days showed the team totals. The results of this competition determined which teams and individuals participated in the remaining competitions, which included:

  • The all-around competition, in which the twenty-four highest scoring individuals in the all-around competed. Each country was limited to three gymnasts in the all-around final.
  • The event finals, in which the eight highest scoring individuals on each apparatus competed. Each country was limited to two gymnasts in each apparatus final.
