Star Item
  • Description

    Spectators watching action with Olympic flame burning in the background. Interesting close up of 110 metres hurdler digging foot holes in the sand, rather than using starting blocks, and spectators watching on. Very high angle start of men's 110 metres hurdles final, low angle tracking shot of whole race, focussing on USA's Forrest Towns, who takes the gold medal. Great Britain's Don Finlay wins the silver, and USA's Fritz Pollard takes the bronze.
