As usual, the tournament came down to two Chinese teams playing each other in the final. The final was a re-match of the 1999 World Championships, in which [Wang Nan] and [Li Ju] had defeated [Sun Jin] and [Yang Ying]. But the final was not close, as Wang/Li won easily in three games, 21-18, 21-11, 21-11. The bronze medal went to the Korean team of [Ryu Ji-Hae] and [Kim Moo-Kyo], who barely defeated the Hungarian team of [Csilla Bátorfi] and [Krisztina Tóth ]. Bátorfi and Tóth led by two games, but lost 3-2, and 21-19 in the fifth game.
