Podium, 52 years ago, in Mexico City Olympics


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
