As World Champions the Soviet Union were always going to be the favourites for the Olympic title in 1976. After the individual championships held a few days earlier had produced a 1-2-3 for the Soviets this favourite’s role became overwhelming. The USSR started off with a series of overwhelming victories before their title aspirations nearly come unstuck against Romania in the semi-final. The match ended in an 8-8 tie which turned into a defeat for the Romanian by a single hit when the tiebreaker rules were invoked. The Soviets then regrouped and went on to win a comfortable victory over Italy in the Olympic final.
