It would have taken a brave man to have predicted anything other than a Soviet victory in the team sabre. After all they were World Champions in 1979, where they also swept the medals individually, and had just provided the winners of gold and silver in the individual foil. As such it came as a great shock when they lost their opening match against Romania by 9-7. They recovered to reach the semi-finals where, largely through the efforts of Viktor Krovopuskov, they defeated Hungary in a close fought contest. The Soviets finally regained their best form in the final and trounced Poland by 9-2 to retain the Olympic title. Hungary beat Poland for bronze.
