Photos from in and around the capital of Queensland, Australia.
Welcome back Cara!This is a representation of the medal ceremony at the 1968 Mexico City Olympic Games.Tommie Smith (1st) and John Carlos (3rd) are giving the now infamous "black power" salute.Australia's Peter Norman (silver medallist) is the other person on the podium.A famous moment in sports.
Thanks for the details, Trevor. I am familiar with the moment. I was getting more at the positioning of the shop sign of the sports store Rebel Sport (top right) and the art work which depicts rebels in sport. I thought I was being a bit clever ;-)
You was! Being clever, that is ...
I was sure that you would have known, but I thought that perhaps other readers might not.Given the later treatment of the two black athletes, I thought that the image was clever indeed!Sorry if I stated the obvious.
