  • Description

    Action from the men's individual figure skating competition, and various shots of USA's David Jenkins, who won the bronze medal, performing his routine. Nice wide angles of Jenkins' routine, showing the high stands of the Cortina Ice Stadium with mountains in the background, and strange shot mocked up to look as if viewing through a telescope. More shots of Jenkins' routine, including nice wide angles of stadium. USA's Ronnie Robertson, who won the silver medal, performing his routine in a white jacket. More shots of Jenkins performing, in a black jacket. USA's Hayes Alan Jenkins, who won the gold medal, performing his routine in a mid-coloured jacket. Alan Jenkins smiling and waving as he skates off after his routine, and nice close up of him being firmly hugged by a friend. Nice close up of Alan Jenkins posing for the camera in a duffle coat with another man, possibly his coach.
