Chu Mu-yen collected one of Chinese Taipei's first ever Olympic gold medals at these Games in the event after beating Mexico's Óscar Salazar 5–1 in their final match. Meanwhile, the bronze medal was awarded to Egyptian fighter Tamer Bayoumi, who easily thwarted Spain's Juan Antonio Ramos in the repechage final 7–1. Despite high hopes, Greece's home favorite Michalis Mouroutsos missed his Olympic title defense after losing the quarterfinal match 2–8 to Bayoumi.

The taekwondo fighters eliminated in earlier rounds by the two finalists of the main bracket advanced directly to the repechage tournament.
