StatusOlympic
LocationAréna Maurice-Richard, Montréal, Québec / Centre Pierre-Charbonneau, Parc olympique, Montréal, Québec
Participants18 from 18 countries
FormatScoring by negative points, with negative points given for any result short of a fall. Accumulation of 6 negative points eliminated the wrestler, but a wrestler could not be eliminated after a victory. When three or fewer wrestlers remained, they advanced to a final round, with preliminary results carried forward.

Bulgarian Khasan Isaev came in as the heavy favorite, having won the World Championship in 1974-75 and the European Championships in 1973 and 1975. He was beaten in round four, however, by Soviet Roman Dmitriyev, the defending gold medalist. Isaev, Dmitriyev, and Japan’s Akira Kudo advanced to the final, where Kudo and Dmitriyev met, only to see them both disqualified for passivity. This gave the gold medal to Isaev, despite his loss to Dmitriyev, with Kudo taking bronze.
