All the recent World and European champions were unable to compete in 1984 because of the Soviet-led boycott. This opened up the class to Turkey’s [Erol Kemah], 1983 World silver medalist, and Japan’s [Atsuji Miyahara], 1981 World silver medalist. Miyahara advanced to the final, but Kemah lost two matches in Group B and did not make the classification matches, eventually placing seventh. Miyahara met Mexican [Daniel Aceves] in the final, winning the gold medal on points, 9-4. Miyahara would return in 1988 at Seoul and win a silver medal in this class. The fifth-place finisher in Los Angeles was Norwegian [Jon Rønningen], who would win two consecutive Olympic gold medals in this class in 1988 and 1992.
