TRAILBLAZERS EPISODE TWELVE: TOMMIE SMITH & JOHN CARLOS

Episode 12 of the Trailblazers series is out now on Eurosport.

We are delighted to share the latest episode is on Tommie Smith and John Carlos – Olympic Stadium in Mexico City on 16 October 1968. During the medal ceremony, two African-American athletes, Tommie Smith and John Carlos, each raised a black-gloved fist during the playing of the US national anthem, “The Star-Spangled Banner”. Today, this gesture has become one of the most overtly political statements in the history of the modern Olympic Games.
