Summary

Williams held on for an easy gold medal and a world record for the Double FITA Round. The bronze medalist was Finland’s Kyösti Laasonen, who had been European Champion in 1968 and runner-up to Williams at the 1971 Worlds. This was the first of his four Olympic appearances, but his only medal. He would later win the World Championships in 1981.
