Join legendary British athlete Harold Abrahams as he's put through his paces shortly after winning Gold in the 100 metre sprint at the 1924 Paris Olympics - later immortalised in the film 'Chariots of Fire'. This extract is taken from 'Running: A Sport That Creates Both Bodily and Mental Health', an edition of the 1920s newsreel 'Sporting Life: A Racing Outlook' which also includes Abrahams' fellow runner and 400 metre champion Eric Liddell.
