1932 Winter Olympics
Eighteen speed skaters from six nations competed.
Like all other speed skating events at this Olympics the competition was held for the only time in packstyle format, having all competitors skate at the same time. This was the common style in North America and gave the runners from the United States and Canada a major advantage over the European rivals.
These were the standing world and Olympic records (in minutes) prior to the 1932 Winter Olympics.
