BaseballEdit

The Korean baseball team, which had finished last four years earlier, improved their result drastically in their second Olympic baseball appearance. They lost their games against perennial powers Cuba (which was the Cubans' 21st straight Olympic win) and the United States as well as Australia, but defeated defending silver medallist Japan as well as the other three teams in the competition. Their third-place finish in the preliminary round pitted them against the Americans in the semifinal, which Korea lost 3–2. In the bronze medal match, the Koreans again defeated the Japanese to take home the medal.
