    Slate reading 'Olympic Games British victories in Berlin'. Various shots of men taking part in the men's 50km walk, then close up of official marking down results. Great Britain's Harold Whitlock walking, then various athletes taking on water. Whitlock takes the lead, Switzerland's Arthur Tell Schwab trying to catch him. Brief shot Whitlock entering the stadium, then spectators look on as he crosses the line to take the gold medal in an Olympic record time, with Schwab, unseen, taking silver.
    Start of men's 1500 metres final, spectators watching on, and various shots of race. Nice close up of New Zealand's Jack Lovelock as he powers away from the field to take the gold medal. Close up Lovelock receiving his gold medal and laurel during medal ceremony, with USA's Glenn Cunningham taking the silver, and Italy's Luigi Beccali the bronze.
