Overview by IAAF  1936_olympic_stadium.jpg
Dompert was the fastest heat winner (9:27.2) in windy conditions, with Iso-Hollo and Tuominen comfortably winning the other heats. Heyn led for 300m of the first lap, whereupon Iso-Hollo moved to the front, with only Matilainen attempting to stay with the reigning champion. Iso-Hollo built up a lead of some 30m, and won by just over 20m after the chasing group of four made their bid for the lesser medals. Manning had to let go first, but Matilainen was third until 200m to go when, to the delight of the crowd, Dompert passed him to win bronze behind Tuominen.
Summary by Sports-reference.com
The defending champion, Volmari Iso-Hollo, was back and was favored. In 1933 he had bettered the world best with a time of 9:09.4 in a Finnish meet. But at the 1936 US Olympic Trials, Harold Manning had run 9:08.2 and was expected to challenge. Iso-Hollo took the lead at the end of the first lap and built up a big lead. This was gradually eroded slightly but he won by over 20 metres. Manning was in second place for much of the race but could not maintain the pace and fell out of the medals on the last lap.
