The Cuban “Black Musketeers” entered as World Champions after claiming the title in 1995 in the Netherlands; however, their hopes of adding an Olympic title were thwarted when Russia defeated them in the semi-finals. Russia would go on to win gold against Poland in the final but not without having to survive a series of incredibly tight matches. They defeated Hungary 45-43, Cuba 45-44 and had to rally to defeat the Poles after Poland took an early lead. Cuba recovered from the semi-final defeat to win bronze.
