Summary

Robert Korzeniowski won this event, adding a second gold medal to his 1996 50 km. title. As they entered the stadium he had a slight lead on Mexico’s Bernardo Segura but Segura surged ahead of him on the track, and crossed the line first. But the Mexican had been given his third warning for lifting just before entering the stadium, and was disqualified. Unfortunately, he was allowed to continue onto the track instead of being pulled from the race. Segura did not immediately realize he had been DQed and was speaking to the Mexican President when he was told of it. Mexican authorities protested, even taking it to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), but it was to no avail.
