With the defending Olympic champions from Italy having failed to qualify for the Games, France were installed as gold medal favourites although they had been more successful as individuals rather than as a team in preceding years. Led by World Champion [Fabrice Jeannet] and his brother [Jérôme Jeannet], France overcame Germany in a tense semi-final but were far superior to their Hungarian opponents in the final and ran out victors on a comfortable 45-32 score line.
