The   Soviet Union (URS) were forced to scratch from the competition after team member Boris Onischenko was ejected for cheating.

The other Soviet team members, Pavel Lednev and Boris Mosolov, were allowed to continue individually, but since three athletes are required to compete in a team event, it was ruled their results received no score in the team competition.
