"The high jump produced one of the most thrilling duels imaginable. Both the winner,
Alice Coachman, a coloured athlete from the U.S.A., and Dorothy Tyler of Great Britain,
who as Dorothy Odam had been runner-up in Berlin while still a schoolgirl, cleared 5 ft.
61/8 in. (1.68 m.) for a new Olympic best performance. The fact that Coachman cleared
this height at her first attempt while Tyler required a second jump decided the tie in
Coachman's favour. So close was this contest throughout that had Tyler also cleared this
height at her first attempt she would have been the winner by reason of having fewer
failures throughout the whole competition."
