The gold was won by Chinese Taipei, who qualified at the number five place and went on to win gold. The silver went to China who in the preliminary rounds were not doing too well. But the unexpected exit of Korea suddenly put China back into the game and then they even toppled the Indian pair of Apurvi and Ravi Kumar, who for a very long time was placed second.
