Summary

Ernst Krebs was the home favorite, having won the 1933 European title in this event. The runner-up (also in 1934) was Sweden's Nils Wallin, who was also in the race. Also highly considered was Fritz Landertinger of Austria. But Krebs took the lead right from the start, with the Austrian trailing at considerable distance. Krebs, a plumber, held on to his lead throughout the race to claim the gold, ahead of Landertinger and Ernie Riedel of the US.
