Cuba had occasionally won medals at World Championships during the 1980s but it was a major shock when their foil team became World Champions in 1991 by upsetting the heavily favoured German team. The same two teams reached the final in Barcelona although by differing routes.

Cuba struggled throughout but always recovered to win through even if it was sometimes by an uncomfortably small margin. In contrast Germany were relatively untroubled in their progress to the gold medal match. Cuba led the final by 7-3 but Germany mounted a comeback to force an 8-8 tie and win the title on the tie-break rule 65-53, using touches.
