Gymnastics[edit]

Eight gymnasts represented Czechoslovakia in 1924. It was the nation's second appearance in the sport as well as the Games; Czechoslovakia had not won any medals in its prior appearance. Individual gymnasts had great success, taking four of the top six places (though Pražák missed out on the gold medal by .017 points) and with all six finishers placing in the top 13. Indruch and Kos, however, did not compete in each apparatus, preventing Czechoslovakia from turning in what would have been a dominant team score.

The only gold medal was that of Šupčík (the overall bronze winner) in the rope climbing. Pražák had two apparatus silvers to go with his all-around silver, while Koutný had one apparatus silver. Vácha had a pair of apparatus bronzes, and Mořkovský added one more. The total tally of nine medals was more than that won by any other nation, though three countries took a pair of gold medals each to place Czechoslovakia fourth on the leaderboard.
