The men's single sculls competition at the 1932 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles took place at the Long Beach Marine Stadium.

Competition format

This rowing event is a single scull event, meaning that each boat is propelled by a single rower. The "scull" portion means that the rower uses two oars, one on each side of the boat. The competition consists of multiple rounds.

During the first round two heats were held. The first boat in each heat advanced to the final, while all others were relegated to the repechages.

The repechages were rounds which offered rowers a chance to qualify for the final. The first two boats in the repechage heat advanced to the final.
