Summary

The favorite was the Italian Giorgio Lamberti, the 1991 World Champion and the world record holder (1:46.69). But he had the flu at his country’s trials and did not qualify for the Italian Olympic team. In the prelims, Russian Yevgeny Sadovy came close to the world record, leading in 1:46.74. The final saw Sweden’s Anders Holmertz lead for almost the entire race, as he had done in Seoul, where he was passed in the final metres and settled for silver. It happened again in Barcelona as Sadovy came on in the final strokes to win gold, just missing Lamberti’s record with 1:46.70. In third, Antti Kasvio won Finland’s second ever Olympic medal in swimming.
