T&FT Rewind No. 20

Tommy Smith, John Carlos and Peter Norman and their role in the Mexico 1968 200m final and medal ceremony was an iconic moment in sporting history – all three medalists paid the price and were vilified in the years that followed in equal measure. If you have the chance to see the film “Salute” about these events it is highly recommended.
