AMERICAN SWIM STAR WINS WOULD TITLE IN GRUELLING MARATHON
TORONTO, ONT., CANADA 50,000 aquatic fans see Ol' Man River's favorite offspring, George Samuel Blagden, a young lawyer of Memphis, TN, win the 15 mile swimming championship race at the 7th National Canadian Exhibition in the most spectacular contest to date of the annual series. When George Young, 1931 champ and the favorite, burns out mid-way and is hauled up, the final battle develops between the Southerner and Gianni Gambi of Ravenna, Italy, who is only 200 yards behind at the end of the 7 hour struggle. The frequent sprint duels and continual drop-outs among the 193 starters make this the greatest flutter kick endurance test ever seen in the Dominion.
