FormatScoring by point tables. Team scores totalled from adjusted individual scores. Scores adjusted in the fencing competition. Three-man scores with all scores counting.

The two best teams in the world were Hungary and the Soviet Union. The Soviets had won the World Championships in 1957-59. But the individual standings told the tale. The three Hungarian athletes, Ferenc Németh, Imre Nagy, and András Balczó, finished 1-2-4, and won the gold medal easily. Although they placed only fifth in the riding, they moved into the lead with a top performance in fencing and were never headed. The Soviet Union won the silver medal. They were only in fifth after the shooting, and fourth after the swimming, but won the cross-country run to move into second place overall. The United States was second after the second, third and fourth phases, but dropped back in the run to a bronze medal.
