Summary
The story, told in flashback, of two young British sprinters competing for fame in the 1924 Olympics. Eric, a devout Scottish missionary runs because he knows it must please God.

Eric, whose qualifying heat is scheduled for a Sunday, refuses to run despite pressure from the Olympic committee.
