Jopie Waalberg swims a new word record in the 500 meter breast stroke in a swimming pool in Haarlem. She is congratulated by her trainer mrs. De Dood-Koenen and the vice chairman of  "Haarlem", mr. J.C. Veldhof. Jopie says a short word of thanks. After that are shots of her record attempt in the 400 meter and of her posing.

During World War II the newsreels by film producers Polygoon and Profilti were controlled by the German occupiers. Polygoon and Profilti had to work together with the German film rental office Tobis. From January 1, 1941 the newsreels were therefore called Tobis News. Until the fall of 1944 newsreels under this name were produced alternately by Polygoon and Profilti.
