Russia had three of the top five ranked fencers in the world and were hot favourites despite having dropped the World title to Italy in 1995. The team of Grigory Kiriyenko, Stanislav Pozdnyakov and Sergey Sharikov ran through the opposition with little difficulty. They defeated Spain 45-34 and Italy 45-28 before recording their most decisive victory, 45-24, against Hungary in the final. Stanislav Pozdnyakov completed the individual and team gold medal double.
