Summary

The best kilometer rider in the world was likely the defending champion Lothar Thoms of East Germany, who was not present. The 1983 World Champion was Sergey Kopylov (URS), also a no show. In their absence, the favorite was the 1982 World Champion, Fredy Schmidtke of West Germany. With the outdoor cement track, the times were much slower than in 1980. But in the end, Schmidtke confirmed his favorite status, winning with 1:06.10. The silver medalist, Curt Harnett (CAN), would win bronze medals in the match sprint in both 1992 and 1996. In 1995, he became the first cyclist to better 10 seconds (9.865) for the final 200 metres of the sprint race, a world record that lasted for 11 years.
