Overview by IAAF   Olympic_Stadium_Amsterdam_1928.jpg 
Both Paddock and Scholz were attempting to reach their fifth individual finals, but after winning his first two races, Paddock was edged out in the first semi-final. Scholz qualified comfortably behind Kornig in the other semi, after the German had equalled the Olympic Record of 21.6 in the previous round. Körnig was the early leader, but Williams and the surprising Rangeley slipped by at the 150m mark. Williams swept away irresistibly to win by 60cm, with Rangeley leaning across the line 15cm ahead of Körnig. Scholz was half a metre back, but inexplicably he was initially bracketed with the German for third place. He declined to take part in a run-off for the bronze medal and was placed fourth.
       
Summary by Sports-reference.com      
The defending champion, Jackson Scholz, was back and probably a slight favorite. But no American had medaled in the 100 in which Canada’s Percy Williams won. In the final, Helmut Körnig (GER) entered the straight leading Scholz, but with 50 metres left, Williams and Walter Rangeley (GBR) moved ahead. Third place was very close and the judges could not decide. At first they called it a dead-heat but then called for a run-off. Scholz declined and Körnig was given the bronze medal. Film of the race confirms that this was the correct decision.
