Summary

Tony Gunawan, who had won gold in this event in 2000 with Candra Wijaya, had teamed with Halim Heryanto to win the World Championships and All-England title in 2001. But since then, the major titles had been divided among five different teams, and Gunawan and Heryanto did not play in Athina. The final in men’s doubles came down to two Korean teams, with Kim Dong-Mun and Ha Tae-Gwon defeating Lee Dong-Su and Yu Yong-Seong. Lee and Yoo had also won the silver medal in Sydney, while Kim and Ha had been bronze medalists in 2000. The 2003 World Champions, Lars Paaske and Jonas Rasmussen, were eliminated in the round of 16 by the third Korean team, Im Bang-Eon and Kim Yong-Hyeon, who then lost in the quarter-finals.
