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.
