From the Vault – Commonwealth Games: Pictorial Parade - Empire Games 1954

  • Sunday 1 Apr

G Members of the New Zealand team for the 1954 Vancouver Empire Games are profiled in this edition of the Pictorial Parade. We see a brief shot of a young Murray Halberg and some wonderful slow-motion footage of long jumper Yvette Williams, demonstrating the technique that made her both an Olympic champion and a world record holder. Also worth noting, the very hard landings that the high jumpers had to endure back in 1954. Not a padded mattress to be seen!
