For some reason, the American chose not to run Archie Williams and Jimmy LuValle, gold and bronze medalists in the 400 metres. Without them, the British were stronger and won fairly comfortably. The early lead was set by Canada and Marshall Limon, but Godfrey Rampling stormed ahead on the second leg for Britain, and they took the lead for good.
