The favorite was Japan’s Mikio Oda who had won the Far East Championships in 1923, 1925, and 1927, and had the longest marks in the past few years. He led from the start, opening with 15.03 (49-3¾), improving to 15.13 (49-7¾) in round two, and to 15.21 (49-11) in round three. The 15.21 (49-11) gave him the gold medal. American Levi Casey recorded 15.17 (49-9¼) in the final round to get silver. Finland’s Vilho Tuulos also produced his best mark in the last round, 15.11 (49-7), which brought him his second consecutive bronze medal.
