    Venue(s): Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, Los Angeles, California
Overview by IAAF    1932_olympic_stadium.jpg
The USA made things very clear in the heats with a time of 40.6 (40.61 on electric timing), which equalled Germany’s world record, though the USA’s time was unratified because of their performance the next day. Germany, winners of the other heat in 41.2 (41.22), were drawn in lane 4 in the final, with the USA in lane 1. Kiesel gave the USA a fine start, gaining 2m on veteran Körnig, and the USA steadily drew away to win by 9m in 40.0 to destroy the world record. Had the USA decided to use Metcalfe, Tolan and Simpson, their three fastest men, the time might have been nearer 39.5.
       
Summary by Sports-reference.com      
This was an easy victory for the United States. In the heats they broke the world record with 40.6. They actually ran without their three fastest runners from the individual races, leaving Eddie Tolan, Ralph Metcalfe, and George Simpson on the bench. Still they shattered their world record in the final, pulling away on every leg, to win in 40.0, leading Germany by nine metres.
