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.
