The Soviets had swept the podium at the 1979 World Championships and, with home advantage, looked in prime position to repeat that success at the Olympic Games. Vladimir Nazlymov, the World Champion, looked in outstanding form during the early stages of the event before a pair of defeats in the knockout rounds sent him crashing out of the competition. The two other Soviets, Viktor Krovopuskov and Mikhail Burtsev, both reached the final pool and tied for first position with four wins each. Krovopuskov won the tie-break bout 5-3 to claim gold. Imre Gedővári of Hungary won bronze with the Etropolski twins from Bulgaria placing 4th and 5th.
