1920 Olympic Games Antwerpen, Belgium - Men's 3000 m Team

 

 

Host City: Antwerpen, Belgium Format: Five men ran for each team with three to count. Point-for-place scoring.
Date Started: August 21, 1920 Format: Top three teams in each heat advanced to the final.
Date Finished: August 22, 1920  
(Competitors: 30; Countries: 6; Finalists: 25/5)  
    Venue(s): Olympic Stadium, Antwerpen
Overview by IAAF   Olympisch-Stadion-Antwerp.png 
Heats were held on August 21, with the first three in each heat qualifying. With four countries in heat 1, and only two in heat 2, this defied logic, and the home country found itself eliminated! Fastest in the heats was Brossard of France, who beat his teammate Burtin by half a metre in 8:35.6. The individual winner was Horace Hallock Brown, who led the USA to their second win in the event. Brown, who had failed to finish in the individual final five days earlier, just managed to outsprint Eric Backman (8:45.5e) by no more than half a metre in 8:45.4, with Schardt 5m back and Burtin a similar distance further behind. Figures in parentheses show the position for the team score, followed by the position in the individual race.
       
Summary by Sports-reference.com      
Only the leading three runners for each nation counted in the scoring. The United States won a surprising victory, and did so rather easily, with their three best runners finishing in the top six overall.
