  • Description

    Slate reads 'Three runs of 11.7 seconds' in German. Women's 80 metres hurdles final action. Brief high angle bank of spectators in Berlin's Olympic Stadium, with Swastika flag flying. Brief close up Adolf Hitler watching the action. Close ups hurdlers digging their foot holes in the sand. Low angle hurdlers getting into position to start race, then very high angle of line up. Spectators watching on, then tracking shot of whole race, with very nice slow motion shot of first hurdle cut in. Italy's Trebisonda Valla wins the gold medal, Germany's Anni Steuer wins the silver, and Canada's Betty Taylor winning the bronze, all of them sharing an Olympic record time of 11.7 seconds, as did fourth place Claudia Testoni of Italy. Brief high angle of medal ceremony, brief close up Valla and Steuer performing Nazi salute on the podium. Flags flying during anthem, and close up of Italy flag.
