Overview by IAAF  1932_olympic_stadium.jpg
The result was little in doubt, particularly after the United States beat the listed world record of 3:14.2 with 3:11.8 in the heats, despite Carr jogging the last few metres. Ivan Fuqua gave the USA a head start in the final with an opening leg of 47.1, beyond the capabilities of all non- American 400m men of the time. Despite a fine leg of 46.7 by Lord Burghley, it was clear that barring accidents the USA would win with world record holder Carr on the anchor leg. Rampling made a valiant attempt to close on Carr, but suffered for it in the last third of his leg, as Carr produced the fastest split of the race (46.2), leading the USA to the first sub-3:10 clocking.
Summary by Sports-reference.com
In the heats the US team broke the world record with 3:11.8. Heavy favorites in the final, Ivan Fuqua put the US in the lead with 47.1, leading Germany by almost 10 metres, and the US was never challenged, breaking their world record from the heats with 3:08.2 and winning by three seconds over Great Britain. On the third leg, David, Lord Burghley did gain a bit on the Americans, and their anchor runner, Godfrey Rampling, also started to close a bit. But his early fast pace was too much for him to hold and he paid the price in the last 100 metres. Rampling was the father of actress Charlotte Rampling.
