Summary

Neither the 1999 World Champions from France nor their predecessors as World Champions, Hungary, could match the depth of talent from Russia. Led by [Stanislav Pozdnyakov], the Russians won a fairly tight match against the Hungarians as an opener but were not seriously challenged by either Romania in the semi-final or France in the final as they comfortably retained the Olympic title they had won in 1996. Germany defeated Romania for bronze.
