Summary

The 1978 and 1979 World Champion was Lothar Thoms (GDR). The early lead was taken by Italy’s Guido Bontempi, who was the fourth rider off, and recorded 1:05.478. That held up until Aleksandr Panfilov (URS), the 13th starter, rode a 1:04.845. Panfilov looked solid until Thoms came to the line as the last starter. Thomas recorded 1:02.955, which broke the Olympic record of 1:03.91 set in the altitude of Ciudad de México, and was also recognized as a world indoor record. The bronze medal went to David Weller of Jamaica. Thru 2008, Jamaica had won 53 Olympic medals, and Weller’s is the only medal not won in track & field athletics.
