    C/U of Miss Cooper posing by the side of a swimming pool in a black swimsuit. Another view of Miss Cooper as she dives into the water. The camera follows her as she swims through the water. "Britain is relying on Miss Joyce Cooper to uphold our prowess amongst the swimming invaders from other lands." Low angle shot of two swimmers in the pool. Low angle shot of spectators on the stands.
