Summary by Sports-reference.com      
Ugo Frigerio of Italy was a heavy favorite. He had already demolished the field in the 10,000 metre walk. He led the entire race and was not challenged. Prior to the race he handed several pages of sheet music to the band conductor, who was in the infield. Frigerio had chosen the music he wished to hear during the race. Barcs noted, “If the orchestra was not playing in the right tempo, Ugo would then turn off in front of them, and seriously reproach the conductor. He reacted smilingly to the shouts of the audience, and began discussions with an occasional spectator, if that sort of thing can be termed a discussion. Finally, the spectators came to like him to such an extent they began to cheer him. If, when he passed the biggest stand, the spectators for some reason forgot to cheer him, he himself called out 'Evviva! Evviva!’”
 

Records

These were the standing world and Olympic records (in minutes) prior to the 1920 Summer Olympics.

World Record 12:53.8 Denmark Aage Rasmussen  ? 1918
Olympic Record 15:13.2 Hungary György Sztantics Athens (GRE) May 1, 1906 (NS)

Every race saw a new Olympic record. At first Donato Pavesi bettered the record in the first semifinal with 13:46.8 minutes. In the second semifinal his fellow countryman Ugo Frigerio improved the record with 13:40.2 minutes. In the final Frigerio again set a new Olympic record with 13:14.2 minutes. As the competition has been discontinued, his Olympic record still stands.
