France, World champions in 1982 and 1983, were considered favourites for the Olympic title as Philippe Boisse and Philippe Riboud had won gold and bronze in the individual event in Los Angeles. They duly reached the final against West Germany but the German team, which included 1980 Olympic champion Alexander Pusch and reigning World champion Elmar Borrmann, rose to the occasion and win gold with 9-5 victory over the French. Italy defeated Canada for bronze.
