Summary

[Sergey Khlebnikov] was favored. He had won the 1982 World Sprints, and was second in 1981. At the 1983 World Sprints, he had won both 1,000s but a fall in the 500 cost him the title. His biggest competition was expected to come from his teammate, [Pavel Pegov], who had set the world record of 1:12.58 at Medeo in 1983, and had finished second at the 1983 World Sprints. Also a challenger was Japan’s [Akira Kuroiwa], winner of the 1983 World Sprints. Kuroiwa was off in the first pair and posted a somewhat ordinary 1:17.49. That time was bettered in the next pair by Soviet skater [Viktor Shasherin], who finished in 1:17.42. Khlebnikov was off in the fourth pair, and took the lead with 1:16.63. The fifth pair had Norway’s [Kai Arne Engelstad] and American [Nick Thometz], who crossed in 1:16.75 and 1:16.85 respectively, moving into second and third place. Those times held up for the podium positions until [Gaétan Boucher] skated in the 10th pair. Boucher had been second at the 1982 World Sprints, and he had by far the best race, finishing in 1:15.80 to win the gold medal by almost a full second. Khlebnikov’s time held on for the silver and Engelstad won the bronze. Two days later Boucher would win a second gold medal in the 1,500 m, and his 500 bronze on the opening day of speed skating would give him a total of three medals in Sarajevo.
