The men's individual all-around, also known as the heptathlon, was one of two gymnastics events on the Gymnastics at the 1908 Summer Olympics programme. As suggested by the alternate name, the competition included seven events with the scores summed to give a final score.

The events were:

  • Horizontal bar, swinging movements
  • Horizontal bar, slow movements
  • Parallel bars
  • Rings, swinging
  • Rings, stationary
  • Vault
  • Rope climbing


The names of the 97 competitors are known. The Official Report gives the places and scores of the first 19. The places of some others are known, though without much systematicity save for the preservation of the placings of the Dutch gymnasts.
