Long time ago my Swedish ATFS colleague notified me about this video. It can be obtained from the archive of British Pathé that has a lot of historical videos. In this video, various events from the 1953 Malayan championships in Kuala Lumpur were highlighted. This included the moment of gold medal winning at 440 yards (50.9s) by Michael Graham Perry who had represented the Federation of Malaya at the 1954 Asian Games in Manila. Perry passed away in 2013 at 82. There are a lot of others but I require time to enables me explore my archive for a detailed story from 1953 Malaysian Championships. Story will be updated.
