  • Short Summary

    Athletics champion Muriel Gunn demonstrates her hurdling technique then does some keep fit exercises.

  • Description

    No title. Two women run towards the camera competing in a hurdles race. We see this again in slow motion from various angles. We then see Miss Muriel Gunn hurdling after a racing start. We see her jump the hurdles from a low angle.

    Miss Gunn and some of her friends sit together on the athletic field and do some keep fit exercises. With one knee bent and the other stretched out in front, the girls touch their elbow on the ground in between their legs. Closer view of Muriel performing some stretching exercises.

    Intertitle reads: "One of the severest tests for a woman in the long jump. (Miss Gunn cleared 18'3 1/2 when breaking the world's record recently.)" We see Miss Gunn performing a long jump from various angles and in slow motion.

    Safety print only.
