FormatSingle-elimination tournament.

Neither the 1999 World Champions from France nor their predecessors as World Champions, Hungary, could match the depth of talent from Russia. Led by Stanislav Pozdnyakov, the Russians won a fairly tight match against the Hungarians as an opener but were not seriously challenged by either Romania in the semi-final or France in the final as they comfortably retained the Olympic title they had won in 1996. Germany defeated Romania for bronze.
