  • Description

    Graphic reading 'Rome', and start of men's 50km walk. Lead walkers walking out of the stadium, and close ups of walkers walking past camera. Mid shot walker walking down road. Rome's Castel Sant'Angelo with cheering crowds, and Sweden's John Ljunggren and Great Britain's Don Thompson battling for the lead, with Thompson pulling away. Pan along spectators, and Thompson pulling away. Close up spectators applauding, then Thompson walking back into the stadium. Thompson crossing the line to win the gold medal in an Olympic record time, and nice close up of Thompson, wearing his medal, smiling with silver medal winner Ljunggren, and Italy's bronze medal winner Abdon Pamich.
