Overview by IAAF    1980_olympic_stadium.jpg
This was one of the worst hit events of the Moscow Games, as the world’s top two men – Greg Foster and world record holder Renaldo Nehemiah, who between them ran 14 of the 15 fastest times of 1980 – were missing because of the boycott. Casañas and Munkelt were the fastest in the first two rounds, with 13.46 and 13.55 in the heats, succeeded by 13.44 and 13.49 in the semi-finals. In the final Casañas led the field to the first hurdle, which he hit hard, and when he did the same at the second, Munkelt was in the lead. Casañas gained all the way from the third hurdle, and at the 10th was just behind, with Puchkov 20cm back, and Prokofyev fourth half a metre behind the East German. Puchkov hit the last hurdle so hard that it smashed, looking as fragile as balsa wood. The Russian bumped Munkelt and both lost ground to Casañas, who finished centimetres behind Munkelt, with Puchkov outleaning Prokofyev for third.
       
Summary by Sports-reference.com      
The best hurdler in the world in 1980 was easily Renaldo Nehemiah of the United States, who had broken the world record twice in 1979, running 13.16 in April and a remarkable 13.00 in May. But because of the US boycott he could not compete, nor could the next best hurdler, Greg Foster of the US. Between them they had run 14 of the fastest 15 times in 1980 leading up the Olympics. The 1976 silver medalist, Alejandro Casañas of Cuba was back, and was favored with 1978 European Champion Thomas Munkelt (GDR). But to show how they fared against Nehemiah, at the 1979 Pan American Games, Nehemiah had won the gold medal by a margin of over two metres over Casañas. In the Moskva final, Casañas got off to a quick start but hit the first two hurdles and was passed by Munkelt. Though he closed from there, he lost out to Munkelt in a lean at the tape.
