Against the wishes of the Israeli track and field authorities, because the Munich Massacre had just taken place, Israel Shaul Ladany competed and won the gold medal in the World 100 km walking title at the 1972 World Championships in Switzerland, in a time of 9:31:00.[2][3][4]

U.S. record

The United States record is 9:36:33, set by Dan Pierce in Houston, Texas, on December 2, 1987.[5][6]
