    Mid shot of boat, with deck full of people. Three women wave from the back of the boat, and various nice close ups of female athletes smiling to camera. Pan from small man, to very tall man, and mid shot of male athletes on steps of boat. Nice shot of the boxing team shadow boxing to the camera, and two men wrestling. Female athletes wave to the camera, and nice shot of the ship, draped with flags, being waved out of harbour by a large crowd.

    "various nice close ups of female athletes" - the first woman seen, at 00:06 is Vicki Draves. She would go on to win 2 Gold Medals, in the 3-metre springboard and 10-metre platform diving competitions.
