The 1922 World Champion, Heinrich Graf, had turned professional, leaving the 1923 Champion, Austrian Andreas Stadler as the top favourite in this event. He had won the World Championships in Vienna, where the entire podium had been Austrian (with Rosinek in second). But a more international field was present in Paris, and Stadler could not match the performances of 20-year-old Pierino Gabetti of Sestri Ponente. The Italian had the best lift in four of the five events and won by a wide margin.
