The finals were rescheduled after Tuan tested positive for coronavirus one day earlier.

In line with regulations, Tuan could not participate in the final. As a result, he got the silver medal and his Vietnamese teammate bagged gold.

Two bronze medals went to Efren Reyes and Francisco Dela Cruz of the Philippines.
