4 x 400 meter relay, USA, Mexico City

Some claim and can argue that this relay team, USA's 4 x 400 meters, was the greatest team ever, of all sports. The raised fists, berets, and pins of solidarity were planned.

Many more are aware of the other podium. 

October 16, 1968.

Podium with Smith and Carlos

It's October 16th, 2020. That means today is the 52nd anniversary of the moment when John Carlos and Tommie Smith raised their fists to the heavens - and Peter Norman stood in solidarity - at the 1968 Summer Olympics in Mexico City.
