    1932 Los Angeles Olympic Games, GB's Tommy Hampson wins 800m gold in record time

  • Description

    Graphic reading 'By two clear seconds! ? T. Hampson beats Olympic world record (1.49 4/5 secs) and retains 800 metre title for Britain..' No audio. Wide shot of athletes as they start the men's 800m final in an almost empty stadium. Nice long shot as the athletes run down the home straight and cross the line on the last lap, with Great Britain's Tommy Hampson taking the gold medal from Canadian Alex Wilson in a world record time, in a very close finish. Nice shot of a serious Tommy Hampson, in his 'Britain' tracksuit, posing next to a smiling Alex Wilson in his 'Canada' tracksuit.
