Overview by IAAF 1896_olympic_stadium.jpg 
Hahn, running from the inside lane, retained his title comfortably, raising his arms in triumph as he crossed the line one and a half metres clear. Eaton, officially fourth, may well have been edged by Robertson for that position.
Summary by Sports-reference.com
Archie Hahn was the favorite although this was solely based on his 1904 victory, as he had been unimpressive in the intervening years. Sorely missed were Britain's Jack Morton, 1904-06 AAA champion, and America's Arthur Duffey, probably the world's top sprinter, but one who had been disqualified in 1905 for professionalism through some rather specious reasoning. It was thought that James Sullivan, who worked for Spalding, ruled against Duffey because Duffey refused to wear Spalding spikes. The world record at the start of 1906 was 10 4/5, held by at least eight different sprinters.
There were some problems with the starter in this event as, in the early rounds, there were several false starts, and many flyers were unrecalled. This was apparently due, in part, to the athlete's unfamiliarity with the starting instructions, which were given in Greek. The final, however, was an absolutely fair start. Archie Hahn defended the Olympic title he had won in St. Louis, winning fairly comfortably by about a yard. The fight for second was very close, but Fay Moulton edged ahead of Nigel Barker by inches near the line. The other three finalists were not close.
