  • Short Summary

    Athletics competition at Cambridge.

  • Description

    Cambridge, Cambridgeshire.

    Title: "ATHLETIC PERFECTION in Varsity Relay Contests - in which new records were set up - perfectly portrayed by our unique camera".

    Panning shot follows two athletes around a running track (looks like a courtyard outside one of the colleges), the two athletes pass their batons onto their relay team-mates. Panning shot follows two athletes racing over hurdles, on reaching the end of the track they pass their batons onto their team mates who run back in the opposite direction. Various shots of the relay hurdle race, a crowd of students watch from the edge of the track.

    Note: I think that the uniqueness of the camera is that the panning shots are very sharp and in focus. AH 2000.
