1950 Boston Marathon (in color)

Footage from a 50′ 8mm reel.

From the the Boston Athletic Association’s website:

* there were 167 entrants in the 1950 Boston Marathon.

* “The extent of the foreign dominance began to deepen as the Korean contingent of Kee Yong Ham, Kil Yoon Song, and Yun Chi Choi finished 1-2-3 respectively. Nicknamed “Swift Premium” by the race writers, Kil was ranked only third on the Korean team, behind their national champion and Olympian Yun Chi Choi. However, Kil, who built an overwhelming advantage between miles 12 and 21, walked four times along the final four miles, before finishing first in 2:32:39.”
