wow - that is very very impressive - a fresh look - at least to me

I lked the "Moses takes the line" and
"Champion of the world" - a bit presumptuous I thought - of the world? just an observation

Looks like EVERY WC has its 53 minutes!!
I'd thought it was one documentary covers all of them!!
Just watched the 1983 version, and it was GREAT!!
All those old names......Moses, Decker, Drechsler (Daute), Lillak, Litvinov, Bubka, Kratochvilova, etc etc!!
Great seeing them again!!

As for calling the winners "Champion of the World"......well, what ELSE would you call the World Champion??

It seems like this was a special for Austrian television?

Decades ago (before 1983) the IAAF stated in irs rules handbook that the Olympic Games was the World Championship in athletics.
