Two of the top teams in the World, the USSR and Hungary, were amongst the boycotting nations so the prospective Olympic champions appeared to be either World silver medallists Italy or the French team led by newly crowned Olympic champion Jean-François Lamour. France and Italy lived up to their billing and cruised into the final with little difficulty. With Marco Marin remaining unbeaten in the final, Italy proved to have too much strength in depth for their neighbours and were comfortable winners of the gold medal for the first time in 12 years. Romania won bronze by beating West Germany.
