• Short Summary

    Light-hearted sports in Australia - wheel barrow races and fox terrier racing.

  • Description

    Title reads: "Sydney's Sunday Sports".

    Sydney, Australia.

    Fun Sports' Day. Various shots of running race for large ladies. Race takes place in large stadium, spectators watch from grand stands.

    Various shots of dogs' race. The dogs are fox terriers, they chase a piece of fur on a string across the stadium. Everything goes wrong in the second race: one of the dogs catches the fake rabbit too early in the race. The dog then runs around the stadium with the bunny in its mouth. None of the race officials can catch it!

    Various shots of wheelbarrow race. One of the contestants is a very fat woman, her skinny male partner is too puny to lift her. One of the race officials gives her a gentle kick and boisterously slaps her backside. She giggles a lot, her skirt falls over her head revealing her enormous knickers.
