StatusOlympic
LocationLegkoatletichesky manezh, Legkoatletichesky Futbolny Kompleks CSKA, Moskva
Participants13 from 13 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.

Vladimir Yumin had won the last three World Championships but was not selected for the Soviet team, as they instead chose 1980 European Champion Magomedgasan Abushev. Abushev made the final round along with Bulgarian Mikho Dukov, who he had already defeated on points in round four, and Greek wrestler Georgios Khatziioannidis. Abushev then overhelmed Katziioannidis in the final, winning a decision, 14-3, to take the gold medal. Dukov, the 1979 World silver medalist and 1978-79 European Champion, threw Khatzi in 2:04 to take the silver medal. Dukov had placed fourth at the 1976 Olympics as a bantamweight. This was the only major podium placement of Khatziioannidis’s career.
