In 1960, the Italian tandem of Sergio Bianchetto and Giuseppe Beghetto had won the gold medal. Bianchetto was back, but this time partnered by Angelo Damiano. In the semis they faced the German team of Willi Fuggerer and Klaus Kobusch. After splitting the first two races, the Germans appeared to have won the third race, but were disqualified for interference and moving out of their lane in the final sprint, allowing Bianchetto/Damiano to advance to the final. There they faced the Soviet team of Imants Bodnieks and Viktor Logunov. Bodnieks/Logunov won the first race, but could not match the Italians in the final two races, as Bianchetto won his second consecutive gold medal in the event. Fuggerer and Kobusch did win the bronze medal race.
