Records[edit]

These were the standing world and Olympic records (in minutes) prior to the 1952 Winter Olympics.

World Record 2:12.9(*) Soviet Union Valentin Chaikin Medeo (URS) January 20, 1952
Olympic Record 2:17.6(*) Norway Sverre Farstad St. Moritz (SUI) February 2, 1948

(*) The record was set in a high altitude venue (more than 1000 metres above sea level) and on naturally frozen ice.

Results[edit]

The current world record holder Valentin Chaikin did not compete as the Soviet Union did not participate in Winter Games before 1956.
