The Soviet coaches had to choose between Vladimir Zubkov, World Champion in 1971 and 1973-75, and [Aleksandr Shumakov], the 1976 European Champion and runner-up in 1974-75. They chose Shumakov who made it to the final round along with the defending gold medalist Gheorghe Berceanu of Romania and Bulgaria’s Stefan Angelov, bronze medalist at München.
