EDITORS COMMENTS
This iconic photograph captures the thrilling moment when Harold Maurice Abrahams (center) crosses the finish line to win the 100m sprint at the 1924 Olympics in Paris, France. Abrahams, a British athlete of Jewish origin, broke the tape in an impressive time of 10.6 seconds, edging out American runner Jackson Scholz (second from right) by a mere nose. The World Record holder at the time, Charles Paddock (far right), finished fourth, while Arthur Porritt (far left) took the bronze medal. Chester Bowman (second left) placed fourth and Loren Murchison (third from right) finished sixth. This image, famously depicted in the 1981 movie "Chariots of Fire," captures the intense focus and determination of the runners as they lunge towards the finish line in this historic Olympic event. The summer of 1924 marked a pivotal moment in athletics history, as Abrahams became the first British champion in the 100m sprint and etched his name into the annals of sporting legend.
