Men's 1500 m - Speed Skating - Cortina d'Ampezzo 1956 Winter Olympics

Event Format: Skaters raced against the clock although they raced in pairs on separate lanes on an oval rink (inner and outer lanes).

The skater on the outer lane had the right of way and the skater leaving the inner lane should avoid collision. The Olympic gold medal winner was the athlete with the fastest time for the race.

Event facts: Men's 1500 m competition was held at the Lago Misurina and 54 athletes participated in the event. The final took place on Thursday, January 4, 2018 and competitions began on Thursday, January 4, 2018.
