Aug. 1: "Eddie Tolin, of Detroit, gave the United States its first victory in the Olympics 100-meter dash since 1920 when he broke the Olympic record and tied the world's record of 10.3 to win the final at Los Angeles.... A hair's breadth behind the Michigan flash came Ralph Metcalfe of Marquette University. Arthur Jonath was third for Germany, George Simpson, U.S. fourth; Dan Joubert, South Africa, fifth; Yoshioka, Japan, sixth. Tolan is shown with arms upraised. The others are pictured in the order if their finish."
