Just before the Olympics, Norway’s Terje Pedersen threw 91.72 (300-11), which was a world record and was the first throw ever over 90 metres, and over 300 feet. But the favorites were Janusz Sidło, 1954 and 1958 European Champion, and the 1962 European Champ, Soviet Jānis Lūsis. Pedersen disappointed in the qualifying and did not make the final. Sidło led in round one with 80.17 (263-0¼), but Lūsis moved ahead in round two with 80.57 (264-4), which would be his best mark. Hungary’s Gergely Kulcsár opened round four with 82.32 (270-1) to take the lead, but Finland’s Pauli Nevala surpassed that in the round with 82.66 (271-2½), winning the gold medal, as nobody got over 80 metres in the final two rounds.
