He finished with a score of 15.066, including an execution score of 8.566. Hashimoto, Srbic and Malone all had the same degree of difficulty on their routines.

It has been a continuation of a great week for Hashimoto, who especially excelled on the horizontal bar each time. He posted the best score on the apparatus in qualifying, while his effort during the individual all-around gave him the separation he needed to take gold over Xiao Ruoteng and Nagornyy.

Brazil's Arthur Mariano was the reigning world champion in this event, but he failed to reach the finals after finishing just 12th in qualifying.

Malone had been seeking the first medal for the United States in men's gymnastics in Tokyo, and he came close in fourth place as part of a clear divide above the second half of the field.
