Summary

The contest for the silver and bronze medals was close between Czechoslovakia, Romania, and Japan, with the Czechoslovaks winning silver and Romania the bronze. But there was no contest for the gold medal, which the Soviet Union won by a huge margin. The Soviets had also won in 1952 and 1956, and would continue to win the gold medal in this event through the 1980 Olympics, only missing in 1984 because of the boycott, and then would win again in 1988 and as the Unified Team in 1992. Despite all those victories, their gold medal in Rome was won with the largest margin over the silver medal team.
