Olympics – 1932 Los Angeles – Track – Mens 5000m – FIN Lauri Lehtinen & USA Ralph Hill


The 1932 Los Angeles Olympics provided sports fans with some really memorable moments and athletes….and one of my favorite moments was in track and field in the men’s 5000m….a race that had been owned in Olympic history by the Flying Finns….as Lehtinen is the world record holder in this event going into the Olympic finals….for he would be facing a really gutsy runner…USA Ralph Hill….and they end in a photo finish.
