At center, a Stanford vaulter is captured mid-air as he descends from his vault attempt and lands in the vaulting pit. He appears to right himself in the air with outstretched arms. The pit extends in front of him to the right. In the foreground at left, a meet official stands with his back to camera and looks up towards the vaulting bar. The bar sits high above and to the left of the vaulter at center. Beyond the vaulting event area, the field and stands at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum stretch across the background.
Spectators in the foreground fill the near stands. All stand with their backs to the camera. Beyond the crowd, the track sits below camera-level. It enters frame from the left and stretches to the right on an upward angle. At left, three runners race towards the finish line. Beside them and on the field, officiants stand on a stepped riser. The field stretches behind them and to the right. At right and past the finish line, the vaulting pit sits beside the track. Empty stadium seats span the background.
A U.S.C. Trojan is captured from a worm's-eye view while making a high jump attempt. Blurry ground sprawls along the bottom edge.

The high jump bar stretches horizontally beneath him. On the ground and near the left edge, a track official stands to the side of the bar and watches the jump attempt. The Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum's stands stretch across the background.
