Overview by IAAF   paris-1924-stade-olympique-de-colombes.jpg 
Atkinson was the fastest in the first round, winning the eighth and last heat in 15.2. He repeated that time in the semi-finals, though on this occasion was just beaten by Guthrie, who also ran 15.2. In the final Kinsey was leading at the first hurdle, just ahead of Atkinson and Anderson, with Guthrie just behind. These four were clear of their Swedish opposition approaching the last barrier, when Anderson fell after hitting the ninth hurdle hard. Kinsey was still just ahead of Atkinson and managed to stay 30cm ahead of the South African’s charge, though Atkinson was off balance from hitting the last hurdle. Guthrie was just behind these two, but subsequently disqualified (under the rules of the day) for knocking over three hurdles. A time of 15.9 credited to Anderson was clearly incorrect as photos show him still behind the last hurdle prostrate as the winner finished.
       
Summary by Sports-reference.com      
The final came down to a close finish between Dan Kinsey (USA) and Sydney Atkinson (RSA). Atkinson had a slight lead at the 10th hurdle, but clipped it with his foot, stumbled, and lost out on the run-in. Karl Anderson (USA) had been near the leaders coming to the ninth hurdle, but hit it hard and fell to the track, although he got up and finished the race. George Guthrie (USA) finished in third place but was disqualified for knocking over three hurdles, giving the bronze medal to Sweden’s Sten Pettersson.
