(world's mark for the distance, but
Liddell, undaunted, came back to

er speed that broke the heart of
'his nearest rival, Horatio Fitch,
;1onc; limbed Chicagoan who him
self had set a new record only an
"hour before in the semi-finals..
Llddell's time for the distance was
'47 3-5 seconds.
' Down the track, almost tinno,
jtlced in the pandemonium that
broke lose when Liddell broke the
ape, a tragedy, was enacted as
mbach lifted' himself painfully
from where he had fallen exhaust
led. He went to the starting pole

pf the distance' that he was badly
.off form. His collapse came as
