These are the results of the men's vault competition, one of eight events for male competitors in artistic gymnastics at the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles. The qualification and final rounds took place on July 29, 31 and August 4 at UCLA’s Pauley Pavilion. With four silver medalists, the event produced the only four-way tie in the Olympics to date.[1]

Seventy-one gymnasts competed in the compulsory and optional rounds on July 29 and 31st. The eight highest scoring gymnasts advanced to the final on August 4. Each country was limited to two competitors in the final. Half of the points earned by each gymnast during both the compulsory and optional rounds carried over to the final. This constitutes the "prelim" score.
