Overview by IAAF    Olympic_Stadium_Amsterdam_1928.jpg
Weightman-Smith was fastest in the first round with 14.8, while six others ran 15.0, and he was again quickest in the semis, this time running a world record 14.6. The first two heats saw Dye and Anderson clock 14.8, with Sweden’s teenager Eric Wennström just eliminated behind Gaby as both ran 14.9 behind Dye. Another Swede, former world record holder Sten Pettersson also missed the final by one place. Collier was fastest off the blocks in the final, with Atkinson just behind him. Atkinson and Anderson soon went clear of Collier, while Weightman-Smith was hindered by smacking a hurdle hard. In a desperately close finish Atkinson edged Anderson by less than six inches, with Dye a similarly slim margin clear of Weightman-Smith for fourth place.
       
Summary by Sports-reference.com      
In the semi-finals, South Africa’s George Weightman-Smith broke the world record with 14.6 for the metric distance. He was joined in the final by his teammate, the silver medalist from 1924, Sydney Atkinson. They were joined by three Americans and Britain’s Fred Gaby. John Collier had the fastest start in the final, but early on was caught by Atkinson and Steve Anderson. They raced together to the finish, Atkinson winning by inches. Weightman-Smith hit a hurdle hard in the early going and never factored for a medal.
