The artistic team rules change with a new strategic rule, known as the "7-6-5" rule: seven gymnasts comprise a team, six athletes compete on each apparatus, and the top five scores on each apparatus count towards the team total. Five of the gymnasts on the USA team are competing in their second Olympics: Dominique Dawes, Jair Lynch, Shannon Miller, John Roethlisberger, and Kerri Strug. This year also marks the last year of compulsory exercises.[/quote] http://www.usa-gymnastics.org/events/1996/olympics/history-80-96.html
