FormatSkaters were ranked on Ordinal Placement, based on judges' points, with final placement for each section determined by Majority Placements. The tiebreaker for the Short Program was the Required Elements score, while the tiebreaker for the Free Skating was the Artistic Impression score. Thus, if a skater was ranked first by a majority of the judges, that skater was placed first overall for that section. Ties were broken by a Subsequent Majority rule, i.e., if the skaters were ranked for the same position by the same number of judges, Majority Placement for the next higher position for each skater determined who was ranked higher. Final placement was determined by factored placements. The tiebreakers were then 1) Number of Majority Placements, 2) Total Ordinals of Majority, 3) Total Ordinals. The placement for the Compulsory Figures was factored by 0.6 (30%), the placement for the short program was factored by 0.4 (20%), and the placement for Free Skating was factored by 1.0 (50%). The sums of the factored placements were then used to determine final placement, with the Free Skating being the tiebreaker.

Since 1980, the world’s top skater had been Scott Hamilton (USA). Hamilton was World Champion in 1981-83 and had not lost a competition since 1980. Hamilton opened by winning the compulsory figures. With the new method of factored placements, this put him in the lead, but the lead could no longer be an overwhelming one. In both the short program and free skating, Hamilton performed at less than his best, overcome somewhat by the pressure of high expectations. He placed second in both phases to Canadian Brian Orser. But Orser had been seventh in the compulsories and had no chance to surpass Hamilton. Hamilton won the gold with Orser winning the silver, despite Orser having six triple jumps in his free skate to four for Hamilton. Czechoslovakia’s Jozef Sabovčík, second at the 1983 Europeans, won the bronze. The runner-up at the 1982-83 Worlds, and European Champion both years, was West Germany’s Norbert Schramm, who stumbled badly, finishing ninth, with his best phase being only seventh in the short program. Hamilton’s figure skating titles were a testament to his ability to overcome adversity. As a child he had suffered from Schwachmann-Diamond Syndrome, a gastrointestinal disorder that stunted his growth somewhat and left him rather short.
