Korea was the defending champion, the 1989 and 1991 World Champions, and the overwhelming favorite in Barcelona in this event. They had the gold and silver medalists from the individual event, and they confirmed their favoriteâs status by destroying the world record in the ranking round. It seemed only a matter of how big their margins would be. But then in the quarter-finals Korea were surprisingly tied by Sweden, although they advanced to the semi-finals in a shoot-out, where they defeated France easily, going on to win the gold in the final match over China. France lost the bronze medal match to the Unified Team.
