ANNOUCER: Next up, the 5,000 1.__________ with America's record-breaking Don Lash leading the American team. Along with newcomer, Louie Zamperini.
ANNOUCER: And already, three sections of runners have formed with America's Don Lash and the Finnish Salminen and Hckert ahead of the pack. The Finns always the 2.__________ in this long-haul event. In the second group is America's Louie Zamperini. The Finns, Hckert, Lehtinen and Salminen have set the pace and they are not letting up. And Zamperini is fading, too, dropping further back. And into the 8th lap it's the Finns still in the lead, with Salminen in first 3.__________.
MAN: Come on, Louie. Come on, Louie.
ANNOUCER: And we start the last 4.__________. The Finns seem to be in control. It doesn't look like Don Lash is gonna bring home the medal for the USA. There seems to be some movement back in the pack. Yes, that's Zamperini overtaking Norway's Rolf Hansen. He seems to have some gas in reserve. He really is making up some time. Hckert and Lehtinen will be one and two. But look at that Zamperini! He's got Don Lash in his sights. Well, the great Don Lash is not gonna be the first American, folks. It's high school kid Zamperini pushing past the record-breakers on this field! I have not seen that! I have not seen that! That final lap, folks, the record for that was 69.2 seconds. Zamperini just did it in 56 seconds. That 5.__________ is going to hold for a while, let me tell you.
