Results[edit]

Qualification[edit]

Eighty-six gymnasts competed in the balance beam event during the compulsory and optional rounds on September 19 and 21. The eight highest scoring gymnasts advanced to the final on September 25. 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.
