Summary

The last two World Champions were Florian Rousseau (FRA) in 1993-94 and Shane Kelly (AUS) in 1995. Seeded 1-2 (Kelly was #1), they were the last two riders to start the kilometer. As Rousseau was ready to start, the leader was America’s Erin Hartwell who had recorded 1:02.940, breaking the Olympic record from 1980. But Rousseau bettered that with 1:02.712 and took the lead. Kelly was the final rider, the current World Champion and world record holder. But just after taking off his foot slipped from his toe clip, and he did not finish the course. Together Rousseau, Kelly, and Hartwell had been on the podium at the Worlds in 1994-95. In 1996, the third podium spot was taken by the surprising bronze medalist, Takanobu Jumonji of Japan. Jumonji received 41 million ¥ for his medal from various Japanese cycling associations.
