Overview by IAAF  1936_olympic_stadium.jpg
Hardin had improved the world record by more than a second in 1934 with a startling 50.6, and had been undefeated in 11 races since 1932. He coasted through the heats in 53.9, and won his semi-final in 53.2 (53.15) ahead of fastest heat winner, White – 53.4 (53.42) – and Mantikas – 53.5 (53.55), who unexpectedly beat out Dale Schofield (51.7 in the US Trials) by 0.01. The other semi was won by Patterson in 52.8. The final was marred by a strong wind against the runners in the back straight, which slowed the race by about a second. Hardin was battled by White for the first half, with the Philippines’ athlete just ahead at the fourth hurdle. Patterson caught the leaders at the next hurdle, and it was only with two hurdles to go that Hardin got clear. Loaring finished quickly, moving from fourth to second in the last 50m.
Summary by Sports-reference.com
At an International in Stockholm in 1934, Glenn Hardin had shattered the world record by over one second, a mark which would last until 1953. Hardin was the defending silver medalist and was heavily favored in Berlin, not having lost since the Los Angeles final. The final was closer than expected as Hardin won, but only by 3/10ths of a second over Canadian John Loaring, who would win the 1938 Commonwealth Games title.
