Overview by IAAF   ESTADIO ULLEVI 
Zhao Yongsheng tried the same tactics which had won him the 1995 World Cup. He took the lead from the start. He was 30 seconds ahead at 10Km, but this shrank to 23 seconds at 20Km and eight at halfway (1:53:50). The Chinese managed to stay in front for another seven kilometres when he was caught by Kononen (7th at halfway). Zhao battled to keep with the Finn but collapsed 3:13 into the race and was taken to hospital with heat exhaustion. Kononen, who received great support from the spectators, had no trouble going one better than in 1993. Perricelli and Korzeniowski finished strongly to claim the silver and bronze medals. “If you can stand up at the finish,” said the winner, “you must be okay.”
 These are the official results of the Men's 50 km Walk event at the 1995 World Championships held on Thursday 10 August 1995 in Gothenburg, Sweden. There were a total number of 41 participating athletes.
