Summary

The Soviet Union had won this event from 1952-80 and were the World Champions in 1981 and 1983, and would have been the favorite in Los Angeles. In their absence Romania was expected to win the gold medal – they had been runners-up to the Soviets at the 1983 Worlds. The United States challenged the Romanians, but it was not quite enough, as Romania won gold, and the United States silver, with the bronze medal going to China. The Soviet Union would win the gold medal again in 1988 and then in 1992, competing as the Unified Team.
