Whitfield Tribute

03 Aug 1948, London, England, UK --- Original caption: 8/3/1948-London, England- This picture of Mal Whitfield, legs churning like engine pistons, shows the superhuman effort he was forced to unleash to win the 800-meter Olympic final over Arthur Wint, giant long-striding Jamaican. The well proportioned Ohio State University student and Army Air Force sergeant (#136) moves with the precision of a well oiled machine toward the tape, as Wint (L, #122) strives desperately to overhaul the American runner. --- Image by © Bettmann/CORBIS
