Summary

Józef Szmidt was back to defend, but he had surgery on his knee only a few months before the Olympics and it was not expected he could win. He had won the 1958 and 1962 European Championships and was still world record holder, but his knee was the question mark. Round one was led by Britain's Fred Alsop, third at the 1962 Commonwealth Games. But Szmidt confirmed his form in round two with 16.65 (54-7½), which was good enough to win the gold. He improved that in the final round with an Olympic record 16.85 (55-3½). The silver was won by Oleg Fedoseyev (URS), who had won bronze at the 1962 Europeans.
