Neither man won a medal as Fick finished 7th and Taguchi finished 4th in the finals. 3) Reid Patterson of the United States set an Olympic record in preliminary heats at the 1956 Games in Melbourne. Jon Hendricks of Australia broke that record in the semi-finals and Patterson wound up finishing 4th in the finals. 4) Gary Ilman of the United States set an Olympic record in preliminary heats at the 1964 Games in Tokyo and then broke that record in the semi-finals.
