Overview by IAAF    1980_olympic_stadium.jpg
Thirty-four men started, and 25 finished, with seven of the non-finishers disqualified. Returning champion Bautista and teammate Domingo Colin set the pace passing 5Km in 20:35, and halfway in 41:25, with Anatoliy Solomin (URS), Pochenchuk and Damilano in the leading group. Solomin and Bautista had opened a 10-second gap by 15Km (1:02:05), with Colin the first of the principals to be disqualified for lifting. Then Solomin and Bautista were lifted from the race, leaving Damilano away and clear. He won by 50 seconds, with Wieser third, more than a minute behind Pochenchuk. One of the first to congratulate Damilano was his twin brother Giorgio, who finished 11th.
       
Summary by Sports-reference.com      
The race was held on a very hot and humid day. The defending champion, Daniel Bautista, led along with Soviet Anatoly Solomin for most of the race. But less than two kilometers from the finish, Bautista was disqualified and Solomin was likewise only a few 100 metres later. Overall, the race saw 136 caution flags and seven DQs. Maurizio Damilano won the race for Italy by over a minute from Pyotr Pochinchuk, in what was considered a major upset.
