  • Description

    SOUTH AFRICAN SPRINTER PAUL NASH HAS AGAIN SHOWN SOME OF THE FORM WHICH MIGHT HAVE EARNED HIM AND HIS COUNTRY A GOLD MEDAL AT THE MEXICO OLYMPICS. AT POTCHEFSTROOM LAST SUNDAY, HE FLASHED OVER THE 100 METRES TO WIN IN 10.2 SECONDS.

    NASH WAS THOUGHT TO HAVE BEEN SOUTH AFRICA'S BEST HOPE FOR THE OLYMPICS. APART FROM THE FACT THAT HE HAD THREE TIMES PREVIOUSLY EQUALLED THE WORLD RECORD OF 10.0 SECONDS FOR THE DISTANCE, HE WAS ALSO ACCUSTOMED TO RUNNING AT HIGH ALTITUDES.

    AT STANDERTON IN THE TRANSVAAL ON APRIL THE 6TH., NASH EQUALLED THE WORLD RECORD TWICE IN THE ONE DAY. FOUR DAYS BEFORE THAT HE HAD RECORDED THE WORLD TIME AT KRUGERSDORP. THE RECORD WAS SET BY ARM HARY OF WEST GERMANY IN 1960, AND IT HAS SINCE BEEN EQUALLED BY HARRY JEROME, OF CANADA; HORACIO ESTEVES OF VENEZUELA; ENRIQUE FIGEUROLA OF CUBA; AND BOB HAYES, JIM HINES AND WILLIE TURNER OF THE UNITED STATES.
