Overview by IAAF   Olympisch-Stadion-Antwerp.png 
Frigerio won the first heat in 47:06.4, a startling time, until it was determined that the athletes had covered 24 laps instead of 25. The time would have been about 49:10 for the full course, still very good compared to the 51:33.8 for Hehir in winning the other heat. In the final Pearman led for the first half of the race, but Frigerio then took over, and went away to win by more than half a lap.
       
Summary by Sports-reference.com      
The United States’ Joe Pearman led for the first half of the race. At that point, Ugo Frigerio picked up the pace and won by over half of a lap.
