Overview by IAAF   Olympic_Stadium_Amsterdam_1928.jpg 
The three Bs – Ball, Büchner and Barbuti – were the most impressive in qualifying, the Canadian and German winning their semi-finals in 48.6, and Barbuti, the US Trials winner, running 48.8 in both the second round and semi-final. With a view of all the finalists at the start, Barbuti went all out, with Phillips and Büchner attempting to stay with him. By the start of the finishing straight, Barbuti had a lead of 5m, but held only half a metre of that advantage by the finish. The official times of 48.2/48.4 for second and third were clearly too conservative. Barbuti’s win was the USA’s only individual track gold medal of 1928, America’s worst-ever showing.
       
Summary by Sports-reference.com      
The world record had been set in May 1928 by American Emerson "Bud" Spencer with 47.0, but he did not make the US team for the open 400 when he only finished fifth at the 1928 AAU/Olympic Trial 400. The US Olympic Trials had been won by Ray Barbuti. The two semi-finals in Amsterdam were won by Jimmy Ball (CAN) and Joachim Büchner (GER). In the final, Barbuti was out the fastest, leading by five metres off the final curve. He hung on to win, though barely, with Ball getting the silver medal, and Büchner the bronze.
