Czechoslovakia won a silver medal at the second Olympic handball tournament. In the first round, the team tied for second place in the points ranking after defeating Tunisia, tying Iceland, and losing to East Germany. Czechoslovakia won the tie-breaker over the Iceland team, which had also defeated Tunisia and lost to East Germany, and advanced to the second round. There, wins over Sweden and the Soviet Union put Czechoslovakia in another standings tie, this time in first place with East Germany. Again, the tie-breaker went to Czechoslovakia, giving the team the opportunity to play Yugoslavia, the winner of the other group, in the gold medal game. Yugoslavia won, 21-16, leaving Czechoslovakia with the silver.
