Overview by IAAF    1972_olympic_stadium.jpg
Avilov was picked for fourth place by Track and Field News, the position he had occupied in 1968 as a 20 year-old. Kirst, the two-time European Champion was expected to take top honours. After three events, Kirst took the lead, but lost ground to Avilov in the high jump despite jumping 2.10. The tall (1.91/89Kg) Ukrainian cleared 2.12, moving within 38 points of Kirst, a margin he halved after the 400m. Kirst led with 4364, with Avilov at 4345 and Janczenko third with 4266. The best marks of the first day came in the 400 when Britain’s Peter Gabbett ran 46.10, and tiny (1.73/69Kg) Bennett zipped through his heat in 46.25. The decisive event was the 110m hurdles, where Avilov ran a good 14.36, while Kirst, after a protracted argument with officials about whether he could use heel spikes, fell and withdrew. Avilov was now over 200 clear of the field in his near perfect decathlon. He set nine personal bests and equalled the 10th, eventually winning from fellow Ukrainian Litvinenko by more than 400 with a world record 8454. Litvinenko clinched the silver with a superb 1500m of 4:05.91, with Katus just getting the bronze ahead of the gutsy Bennett.
       
Summary by Sports-reference.com      
The favorite in 1972 was likely East German Joachim Kirst, who had won the 1969 and 1971 European Championships. The decathletes in 1972 were unfortunate as they had to re-open the Olympics, the morning after the postponement to mourn the murder of 11 Israeli athletes and coaches. Kirst led after the first day, but hit the third hurdle in the 110 and fell, dropping out. Soviet Nikolay Avilov won the hurdles in 14.31 and took a commanding lead in the competition. As the 1,500 started the only suspense was if Avilov could break Bill Toomey’s world record 8,417 points. Avilov ran 4:22.8 to set a world record with 8,454. In his book, The Decathlon, Frank Zarnowski noted the irony of this victory, “The decathlon award ceremony was an ironic moment in sports history as it was held the very evening Jews celebrate the new year. Sundown, September 8, 1972, ushered in the Hebrew year 5733. Observers of Rosh Hashanah both mourned the slaughter of 11 Israeli athletes and officials and applauded the victory of Nikolay Avilov, a Soviet Jew.”
