The 1968 Olympics Black Power Salute: African American athletes Tommie Smith and John Carlos raise their fists in a gesture of solidarity at the 1968 Olympic games. Australian Silver medalist Peter Norman wore an Olympic Project for Human Rights badge in support of their protest. Both Americans were expelled from the games as a result.
Bob Beamon, uncoached for six months before the Mexico Olympics (1968) and so naive that he did not mark out his run-up, almost failed to qualify for the final, fouling two of his three attempts. In the final, his first jump ended the competition. He landed 8.90 metres from the board, a world record by 55cm. 'I can't go on. What is the point? We'll all look silly,' said Britain's defending champion Lynn Davies, who was to finish ninth. 'You have destroyed the event,' he said, turning to Beamon.
