Sir Peter Snell wins 1500m Gold, 1964

After his 800m Gold medal win in 1964 Snell backed it up and won the 1500m title even more decisively. He bursted clear with 240 metres remaining and quickly leaving the rest of the field in his wake. The 1500m race was the first time two New Zealanders had won medals in the same Olympic event, because John Davies was the surprise bronze medallist.
