From left to right Italy’s silver winner Gregorio Paltrinieri, Denmark’s gold medal winner Mads Glæsner and Faroe Island’s silver winning Pál Joensen. The podium places were later shuffled because of Glæsner’s doping sentence, so that Paltrinieri became world champion, Pál silver winner and Poland’s Mateusz Sawrymowicz bronze winner.
