Except for the United States win in 1979, all World Championships since 1954 had been won by an Eastern Bloc nation. With the Eastern Bloc boycott, the 1984 team modern pentathlon was lacking most of the top teams in the world – mainly Hungary, Poland, and the Soviet Union. Italy had two of the medalists from the individual event – Daniele Masala and Carlo Massullo and were led by them as they won the gold medal. Italy and the United States finished one-two in the riding, the first phase, and they stayed that way through all four days of competition, with the USA winning silver, followed by France in third place, which was their first Olympic pentathlon medal. Sweden was close after three events, but was eliminated from contention when Roderick Martin was disqualified in the shooting. He failed to shoot at one target and then shot twice at the next.
