Summary

The defending champion was Korea and they had been World Champions in 1991 and were expected to repeat in Barcelona. No one gave any thought to the home team Spanish side, which was seeded 10th, and whose highest place in the men’s individual had been 29th. Korea did not even get through to the semi-finals, despite leading the ranking round, as they were upset by Finland. Finland advanced to the final where they met the upstart Spanish team, which won the gold medal 238-236. Great Britain repeated their bronze medal performance from Seoul.
