Mexico 1968 is encapsulated in one photo. It is one of the most famous pictures of the 20th Century. Tommie Smith and John Carlos standing on the Olympic podium after the men’s 200 metre sprint, listening to the American national anthem with their medals round their necks: heads bent, fists clenched, black gloves.

Those revolutionary Games changed political awareness towards sport, as well as its technical and technological development.
