When three wrestlers remained within a group, they wrestled a round-robin series to determine the top three placements within the group. The winners of each group then wrestled for 1st and 2nd place. Runners-up in each group wrestled for 3rd and 4th place. Third-place finishers within each group wrestled for 5th and 6th place..

Gold: KOR Kim Won-Gi
Silver: SWE Kent-Olle Johansson
Bronze: SUI Hugo Dietsche


The 1983 World Champion was Finland’s [Hannu Lahtinen], who came in as the favorite. He lost his first match to Japan’s [Seiichi Osanai], however, and later lost to Egyptian [Salem Bekhit], and thus Lahtinen was eliminated and was not classified. The final came down to Korean [Kim Won-Gi] against Sweden’s [Kent-Olle Johansson]. The match was quite dull, although close, with Kim winning the match in which no points were scored, taking the gold medal on tie-breaking criteria. Bronze went to Switzerland’s [Hugo Dietsche], who defeated American [Abdurrahim Kuzu] on points, 8-4.
