The Soviet Union was the reigning Olympic champion and World runner-up in the C-2 1000 and sent Andriy Khimich and Stepan Oshchepkov to the 1964 Summer Olympics, the latter of whom was a 1961 European runner-up. Romania was the other strong nation, having won the 1961 and 1963 European Championships and the 1963 World Championships, and sent Igor Lipalit and Achim Sidorov to Tokyo, the latter of whom was one of the most recent World Champions. Hungary was another contender, having come in third at the 1963 European and World Championships with Árpád Soltész, who travelled to the Games with Antal Hajba. The opening heats were won by the Soviets and the German duo of Detlef Lewe and Klaus Böhle, the former of whom did so in Olympic record time. Khimich and Oshchepkov set another Olympic record in the final, winning gold with ease, while both Hungary and Romania were left off the podium thanks to strong drives from France’s Jean Boudehen and Michel Chapuis and Denmark’s Peer Norrbohm and John Rungsted Sørensen, who took silver and bronze respectively with time to spare.
