These are the results of the men's individual all-around competition, one of eight events for male competitors in artistic gymnastics at the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich. The qualification and final rounds took place on August 27, 29 and 30th at the Sports Hall.
One-hundred thirteen gymnasts competed in the compulsory and optional rounds on August 27 and 29. The thirty-six highest scoring gymnasts advanced to the final on August 30. There was no limit as to how many competitors each country could have 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 each gymnast's "prelim" score.
