Getting Off to a Good Start – Strength Magazine – May, 1925

The great interest shown by the public attendance at the various indoor race events that have “Nurmi and Ritola” for their star feature shows that foot-racing is in for another big revival. There has always been something fascinating about this sport that has had a strong appeal for young and old alike, making it the most popular of track sports. The greatest thrill comes in sprinting. From the moment the racer toes the mark he is filled with repressed eagerness, with all his senses acutely ten se d, ready to burst into · dynamic action the moment the pistol sounds.
