Olympics – Special – The Rare Ones – Mens 800m – Peter Snell & Dave Wottle & Alberto Juantorena


After posting over 1600 vintage sports, comedy and music videos here at Imasportsphile…..I have grown to have a particular liking for the works of certain sports film producers such as Ed and Steve Sabol at NFL Films along with Bud Greenspan and his Olympiad Series….which focuses on various Olympic events and the athletes who outshined the rest in those particular events….as this Greenspan produced and narrated film caled “The Rare Ones – The 800 Meters”…..which features such outstanding mens’ 800 meter runners throughout Olympic history such as USA Mal Whittfield, JAM Arthur Wint, NZEA Peter Snell, AUS Ralph Duobell, USA Dave Wottle and CUB Alberto Juantorena.

Bud Greenspan had a special way of delivering his wonderful Olympic athletics footage….while combing it with a style of “word merchanting” that is unsurpassed….plus is voice is just perfect for the Olympic story that he tells about the greatest “rare ones” of the mens’ 800 meter race….for his productions are elegant and his voice is eloquent….which makes for some of my most favorite sports films ever produced….which simply equates to a video that is well worth watching.
