  • Description

    No title.

    "Mr. Hodge" demonstrates his hurdling technique. It is the old "crooked" style. Slow motion photography is used to highlight the "crossed leg" action. A woman high jumper is shown in slow motion, as are two woman shot putters. The second sportswoman nearly loses her balance after she takes her throw. A "photo-finish" women's sprint is shown in slow motion.
