• Short Summary

    Exciting mile race at Knights of Columbus indoor games in New York.

  • Description

    Titles read: "NEW YORK - INDOOR MILER SETS RECORD".

    New York, United States of America.

    General view of indoor racing track where the Knights of Columbus games are being held. In the mile event we see athletes Peter Close of St John's followed by Houston University's Barrie Almond. Ireland's Ron Delaney and Hungary's Istvan Rossavolgy follow.

    Almond goes into the lead, then all three are suddenly overtaken by Rossavolgy at sprinter speed. Delaney follows him and tries to beat him. In the last few strides Delaney overtakes Rossavolgy and wins the race. Team mates and press surround him. Crowds applaud. Delaney looks knackered!
