Overview by IAAF  1932_olympic_stadium.jpg
Beard (14.7), Finlay (14.8), Welscher (14.8) and Keller (14.9) were the heat winners, and Keller then won the first semi-final in 14.5, one tenth ahead of Lord Burghley and Finlay, while Saling equalled the world record of 14.4 ahead of Beard (14.6) in the other semi-final. The final got under way at 15:45 with Keller on the outside fastest away, Beard on the inside closed up on Keller, catching him when he hit the fifth hurdle. Beard caught the sixth barrier, and Saling went into the lead. Saling hit the 10th and stumbled, but was well in the lead by then and won by more than a metre from Beard. Finlay prevented a USA clean sweep, catching Keller with a driving finish. Welscher was disqualified for knocking over three hurdles, a harsh rule in view of the hindering effect of hitting the old fashioned barriers.
Summary by Sports-reference.com
The two semi-finals were won by Americans Jack Keller and George Saling. Keller had tied the 110 hurdle world record of 14.4 at the Olympic Trials. But in his semi-final, Saling had also tied that world record. In the final, Keller got off to the fastest start but was caught at the fifth barrier by Percy Beard (USA). Beard hit the next hurdle and was passed by Saling who won pulling away. Keller looked to have placed third originally, but film of the race was reviewed and the bronze medal was then given to Don Finlay (GBR).
