The position was clear by the start of the 1976 Olympic Games. The USSR, having won the last two World titles, were the strongest team in the world with Hungary and Romania clearly second and third in the pecking order. An early defeat to France cost Romania dearly as they found themselves drawn against the Soviets in the quarter-finals and exited the tournament. France turned into the story of the event and after eliminating Poland in the quarter-final they caused another shock by defeating Hungary on a tiebreaker in the semis. The fairy tale ending did not come to pass for the French women as the USSR proved a class apart in the final.

Hungary recovered from their disappointing loss against France to beat West Germany for bronze.
