Summary

Vladimir Yesheyev had won the 1987 World Championships (and 1982 Europeans), but American Rick McKinney had won that title in 1983 and 1985. They were both in Seoul as was 1976 and 1984 gold medalist Darrell Pace. The third American was Jay Barrs, who seemed an afterthought to McKinney and Pace. But Pace went out in the semi-finals, placing ninth, while Yesheyev, McKinney and Barrs all qualified for the final. McKinney would finish out of the medals in sixth, while Barrs won a surprising gold medal, with Yesheyev earning a bronze, following Korea’s Park Seong-Su. Park would add a gold medal in the team competition in Seoul. Yesheyev would later win European team titles in 1988, 1990, and 1992.
