Info Wanted: Leni Riefenstahl's Olympia - any good preservations?

So far no good version exists on DVD, and it has never been released on blu ray.

Now there is the Criterion laserdisc which is the only home version to have ever been authored under the supervision of Leni.

Anyone know if that version has ever been ripped?

I don’t know myself, but I’m certainly interested in finding out. So far my searches of sources have turned up nothing.

I’ve never seen one. I’ve just seen DVD rips.

I do have the laserdisc myself but no equipment or knowledge to copy it. I found a place that would do it for $50 perhaps if people chip in we can make it happen?
