Olympic Record 3:38.82 / Gunnar Olsson SWE / 29 September 1988

Norway’s Knut Holmann was the two-time reigning World Champion in the K-1 1000 and, by the day of the final, had been an Olympic K-1 500 bronze medalist as well. He was the favorite in the K-1 1000 at the 1992 Summer Olympics, with his biggest challenge likely to come from Greg Barton of the United States, the defending Olympic champion in both the K-1 and K-2 1000. These two were drawn into the same opening heat, in which Holmann won in Olympic record time and Barton was consigned to the repêchage after coming in third behind Marin Popescu of Romania. Holmann had bested the record set by Australia’s Clint Robinson two heats earlier, while Beniamino Bonomi of Italy and Thor Nielsen of Denmark took the others. Barton defeated Nielsen in the first semi-final heat by the slimmest of margins, 0.01 seconds, and also bested Popescu and Bonomi, while Holmann was victorious against Robinson in the other. Holmann and Robinson led the pack in the first three-quarters of the final but, as they approached the finish, they were challenged by both Barton and Popescu. Robinson, Holmann, and Barton crossed the line within 0.67 seconds of each other, while Popescu faded slightly near the end and took fourth 0.47 seconds later.
