Another expected victory for the Soviet Union. In the Belgian team Meulders disappointed while Goormachtigh managed to win an individual silver medal – the only Belgian ever to do so and, in fact, the first Belgian to win any medal at all. Defize participated as Belgian champion, while Meulders and Goormachtigh qualified after a preliminary match. I  believe the three other players were selected due to their FIDE elo, but I’m not sure. [1] has the full results.
