Overview by IAAF  1932_olympic_stadium.jpg
Eastman had set a world record of 46.4 for 440y around one curve early in the year, but had then lost to Carr in the IC4A championships and the US Trials. Carr won the first semi-final in 47.2 (47.25) ahead of Wilson (47.8), Golding (48.0) and Godfrey Rampling (48.0), while Eastman won the other race in 47.6 (47.60) ahead of Walters and Gordon (both 48.2). In the final, the lanky (1.85/70Kg) Eastman quickly took the lead, passing 100m in 10.8 (Carr 10.9) and halfway in 21.7 (Carr 22.1), with Gordon second in 22.0. Eastman still led at 300m (33.7 – 33.8), but was powerless to hold off the smooth stride of the smaller man (1.72m) in the closing stages. Carr won by 2m, with a metric world record.
Summary by Sports-reference.com
Early in 1932, Ben Eastman had broken the world record for 400 metres and 440 yards with 46.4. But he was defeated at both the Olympic Trials and the IC4A Championships by Bill Carr. The two won the semi-finals with Carr posting 47.2 and Eastman 47.6. In the final, Eastman led thru the first 300 metres, but he was caught by Carr with 80 metres to go, who held on for a two-metre victory in the world record time of 46.2.
