The 1922 World Champion, Heinrich Graf, had turned professional, leaving the 1923 Champion, Austrian [Andreas Stadler] as the top favourite in this event. He had won the World Championships in Vienna, where the entire podium had been Austrian (with [Rosinek] in second). But a more international field was present in Paris, and Stadler could not match the performances of 20-year-old Pierino Gabetti of Sestri Ponente. The Italian had the best lift in four of the five events and won by a wide margin.
