Overview by IAAF    
The USA were fastest in the heats, running 41.2 in the final heat, with Canada (42.2) and France (41.8) the other heat winners. Germany had twice run 40.8 during 1928 – neither of which was ever ratified as a world record – and qualified easily in 42.0 behind France. In the final the USA and Germany were evenly matched until the final changeover, when Körnig started too early and had to slow slightly to get the baton from Houben. By then Russell was clear, and he won by one and a half metres. Britain was third after London made up nearly 5m on Mourlon.
       
Summary by Sports-reference.com      
Germany and the USA were favored, with the Germans having recently twice run 40.8, although neither time was ratified as a world record. They both came thru the heats easily. The final was very even, but on the final changeover, Helmut Körnig started too quickly and had to slow down to avoid running out of the exchange zone. That allowed Hank Russell to get the US a slight lead which they held to the finish, equaling the world record of 41.0.
