A group of people standing with three female athletes in a grassed area at Olympic Park. One of the athletes is demonstrating her warm up routine, in preparation for the upcoming Olympic Games held in Melbourne in 1956.

This image is part of the Laurie Richards Collection at Museum Victoria comprising approximately 85,000 negatives taken by the Melbourne based Laurie Richards Studio between the 1950s -1970s. These negatives are all mostly large format [5"x 4"/ 12.5 x 10 cm], black and white images, though a significant number are in colour. The many photographic jobs that were undertaken in the course of thirty years are itemised in a set of log books, copies of which are also held by Museum Victoria.
