  • Description

    Graphic reading 'Rome', and start of women's 100 metres freestyle swimming final. Close up spectators, then lead swimmers making the turn, where Australia's Dawn Fraser takes the lead. Spectators watching on, and end of race, with Fraser pulling away to take the gold medal, USA's Chris Von Saltza the silver medal, and Great Britain's Nathalie Steward the bronze. Scoreboard showing the result of the race, and Fraser receiving her gold medal during the medal ceremony. Scoreboard incorrectly shows Steward coming from Canada ? she doesn't! Wide angle of spectators, and medal winners shaking hands.
