Hadi Saei of Iran had placed at the World Championships as far back as 1997, and won a bronze medal in this division in 2000. He was co-favorite with Huang Chih-Hsiung of Chinese Taipei, who had won an Olympic gold medal in the 58 kg. class in 2000, and was world bantamweight champion (62 kg.) in 2003. The 2003 featherweight World Champion had been Kang Nam-Won of Korea, who also was bantamweight World Champion in 2001. But Kang was not present in Athína, Korea being represented by Song Myeong-Seop. Song and Saei met in the semi-finals and it was the best match of the tournament, with Saei prevailing only by superiority after a 9-9 tie. Huang’s path to the final was easier. The two favorites met in the final and Saei pulled out a narrow 4-3 victory. Song won the repêchage round for the bronze medal.
