Heading into 2021, Germany had the undoubted strongest crew with the 2018 and 2019 World Championships and the 2020 European Championship to their credit. In the 2021 European Championship, however, they came in a disappointing fourth, giving hope to some of the other strong contenders. These included Great Britain, winners of gold at the 2016 Olympics, as well as at the aforementioned 2021 European event. New Zealand also put in a very impressive performance at the more recent final Olympic qualifying regatta, marking them as a team to watch.

Germany and the Netherlands moved straight through to the finals from the qualifying heats, with New Zealand, Great Britain, the United States, and Australia joining them through the repêchage. The medal race was a tight and exciting affair, with Germany and the Americans breaking out fastest. They were soon joined by New Zealand and Great Britain, with just a second separating the four boats at the halfway mark. With 500m to go, New Zealand held a slight lead over Great Britain, which they managed to maintain to win the gold. Germany put on a late sprint to overtake the British for the silver; Great Britain settled for bronze.
