Various shots of World Champion Weightlifter Douglas Hepburn weight lifting (of course) in a gymnasium while a crowd of people watch. He is quite a large man in a small unitard. Extra weights are added. Hepburn is congratulated after a lift. He then lies on his back on a bench and lifts weights. More are added and he does it again! Brief shot of Hepburn relaxing after his ‘performance’.
