On 16 October 1968, the image of two black American athletes, heads bowed, black gloved fists raised into the night sky in the so called 'Black Power' salute, rocked the Olympic movement to its very core and also sent shockwaves throughout the world; a world already reeling from the recent assassinations of Dr. Martin Luther King and Senator Robert Kennedy, China's Cultural Revolution, the brutal murder of hundreds of Mexican students, and anti-Vietnam War demonstrations. In the intervening 40 years, the salute has become an iconic image, not only for the Olympics, but of the 20th century. While most focus their attention on the Americans, there was a third individual on the 200 metres victory dais that night. A biography of the white Australian who stood tall, proudly wearing, alongside his silver medal, a civil rights badge in support of the silent protest made against racial discrimination. For the first time ever, the full story of the protest is told with input from all three Olympic medalists. Norman's life was never the same after the Olympics. In ensuing years he paid a heavy price for his fame. He turned his back on his Salvation Army faith; walked out on his first wife and three young children; remarried and had a second family; suffered an horrendous injury during an ill-fated comeback to athletics aged 42; battled alcohol and prescription drug abuse; and died suddenly aged 64 following quadruple heart surgery. Olympian, activist, humanist, father - Peter Norman was many things to many people. However the one indisputable truth is, because of Norman's efforts in that famous race, he remains the most successful sprinter in Australia's proud Olympic history

Olympic medalist and activist John Carlos was born in 1945, in Harlem, New York. Carlos entered East Texas State University (ETSU) on a track scholarship. He transferred to San Jose State University in California where he continued track and field competition. He also met sociologist Harry Edwards. With Edwards, he helped to co-find the Olympic Project for Human Rights. Carlos supported Edwards’ efforts to organize a boycott of the 1968 Olympic Games in Mexico City in protest of the United States’ failure to address human rights. The boycott was not successful but Carlos and teammate Tommie Smith made an historic symbolic salute at the 1968 games, when they placed first and third in the 200-meter event. Smith and Carlos raised black-gloved fists in a silent protest of racism and economic depression of disenfranchised people in the U.S. The head of the U. S. Olympics team banned them from the games
