Summary

The two co-favorites were Americans Blaine Lindgren and Hayes Jones, the 1960 bronze medalist. The chance for a fifth consecutive US medal sweep went away in the semi-finals when Willie Davenport injured his thigh. In the final Jones was away quickly – he was considered the fastest starter in the world. But Lindgren closed and was even at the last hurdle, only to lose out on the run-in. Anatoly Mikhaylov finished third to get the first Soviet medal in this event.
