Summary

Korea had won the last four World Championships and the last two Olympic titles. As they had done in 1992 the Korean women set a world record in the ranking round, but unlike 1992, they were unchallenged in their matches as they won their third consecutive gold medal in this event. Korea defeated Germany in the final round, with the bronze medal going to Poland, who defeated the surprising Turkish team to win that medal.
