Overview by IAAF  1964_olympic_stadium.jpg
Hary’s auto-timed Olympic best was equalled by Jerome in the second round, and then beaten by Figuerola’s 10.31 in the next race. Championship favourite Bob Hayes opened up in the semis, running an awesome 9.91, aided by a wind of 5.3. Ten minutes later the wind was -1.2 for Jerome’s 10.37. Hayes drew the chopped up inside lane for the final, with Figuerola in 3, and Jerome in lane 5. These three quickly drew clear in the final, with the burly (1.82/86Kg) Hayes exhibiting enormous power in drawing away at the 30m mark to win by 2m from two superb sprinters. It was the most dominant piece of 100 metre running in Olympic history. A measure of Hayes’s quality as a 100m man was that by the end of 1964 his tally of legal 9.3 100 yard or 10.2 100m clockings totalled 29, more than the total of his principal rivals Jerome (15) and Figuerola (13), despite them starting their international careers before him.
Summary by Sports-reference.com
By the time of the Tokyo Olympics, the overwhelming favorite was the American, Bob Hayes. A powerful runner who also played American football at Florida A&M University, Hayes became noticed in 1962 when he ran 9.2 and 10.1, and then in 1963 he broke the world record for 100 yards, running the first legal time of 9.1, a mark he equaled three more times before Tokyo. He did not lose a 100 yard/metre race between 1962 and the Tokyo Olympics. He won the AAU Title in 1962-64 as well. His main opposition in Tokyo was felt to be Canadian Harry Jerome and Cuba’s Enrique Figuerola.
But in reality, there was no opposition. In the semi-finals, Hayes ran an automatic time of 9.91, although it was strongly wind-aided. In the final he drew lane one, which the day before had been chewed up in the rain by the 10,000 metre runners, and early in the day the 20 km. walkers had also ripped up the red clay track. It mattered little to Hayes, as his margin of victory was described by Track & Field News as “insulting to an Olympic final field.” Hayes retired after the 1964 Olympics, and played professional football with the Dallas Cowboys. Many athletics historians still consider him the fastest sprinter ever.

 Note that until the Tokyo Olympics world records were measured by officials with stopwatches, measured to the nearest tenth of a second. Although fully automatic timing was used in Tokyo, the times were given the appearance of manual timing. This was done by subtracting 0.05 seconds from the automatic time and rounding to the nearest tenth of a second, making Hayes' time of 10.06 seconds convert to 10.0 seconds, despite the fact that the officials with stopwatches had measured Hayes' time to be 9.9 seconds, and the average difference between manual and automatic times was typically 0.15 to 0.20 seconds. This unique method of determining the official time therefore denied Hayes the record of being the first to officially record 9.9 seconds for the 100 meters. The first official times of 9.9 seconds were recorded at the "Night of Speed" in 1968.
