From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The men's floor exercise competition at the World Artistic Gymnastics Championships was first contested in 1930. It has been held in every year since its inception.

Three medals are awarded: gold for first place, silver for second place, and bronze for third place. Tie breakers have not been used in every year. In the event of a tie between two gymnasts, both names are listed, and the following position (second for a tie for first, third for a tie for second) is left empty because a medal was not awarded for that position. If three gymnastics tied for a position, the following two positions are left empty.
