The most recent medal was the silver won by Olli Laiho in 1968. The most recent international medals won by Finnish gymnasts are the horizontal bar world championship of Jani Tanskanen from 1997, the horizontal bar silver medal of Jari Mönkkönen from the European Championships of 1998 and Tomi Tuuha’s European championship in vault in 2010.
