This was the Olympic début of badminton mixed doubles. The last two World Championships had been won by Europeans – 1993 by the mixed team of [Thomas Lund] (DEN) and [Catrine Bengtsson] (SWE), and 1995 by the Danish team of Lund and [Marlene Thomsen]. But Lund and Thomsen, also the 1995 All-England champions, did not enter the mixed event in Atlanta. The 1996 All-England title was won by Korea's [Na Gyeong-Min] and [Park Ju-Bong], who were also world ranked #1. Park had won a gold medal in 1992 in men's doubles. The mixed final came down to Ra/Park against another Korean pair, [Gir Yeong-A] and [Kim Dong-Mun], the 5th-ranked team in the world. The match went three games, with Gir and Kim winning, 15-12, in the final game. Gir and Park would soon retire, and Kim and Ra would begin competing together, winning the 1999 World Championships.
