    Full title reads: "America. The Sport ... Dangerous! Germany's crack Bobsled Team crashes at 65 mph during tryout for Olympic Games."

    United States of America.

    Two members of the German bobsleigh team seated on their sled.

    The Germans are given a push at the top of the run. Side angle shot of them being pushed. Shots of the sled starting off down the run.

    A four man bobsleigh is launched at the top of the run. Shot of the sled going down the run.

    Shot of the sled as is comes round a corner close to the camera. Lots of good shots as the bobsleigh makes its way down the twists and turns of the course.

    What appears to be footage from on board the sleigh as it negotiates the run (these are almost certainly faked). Shot of the German bobsled after a crash. Men look at the broken sled, it is in the trees on one side of the run. C/U man turning the twisted steering wheel of the sled.
