"A comfortable winner. Poland's great Irena Szewinska, rated as one of the two greatest female athletes of all time, raises her hand in victory as cruising home to win the 400 metres in 51.4 seconds at the Norman Manley Memorial meet at the National Stadium on Friday night. America's Rosalynd Bryant (left) finished second. Others from left are: Gwen Norman (USA) who finished sixth, Norma Forde (Barbados) fourth, Helen Blake (Jamaica) fifth, and Pam Gyles (USA) third."
