The Hungarian team matched their achievement of 1968 by adding the team title to the individual honours they had won a few days earlier. The winning team included three members, [Csaba Fenyvesi], [Győző Kulcsár] and [Pál Schmitt], who had also competed in Mexico City.

Hungary recovered from an early loss to Sweden to win the title fairly comfortably. They defeated Switzerland in the final.
