      The first ever Olympic games in Latin America, and the first to be in any Spanish-speaking country in fact, the 1968 Games were a time of protest and history. The iconic photo of Tommie Smith, John Carlos, and Peter Norman all standing up for the civil rights movement in America was a controversial and earth-shaking symbol similar to the knee taken at football games today.

      The games were also known for dozens of records (due to the high elevation) and these records are today noted with an asterisk for the "special air" that helped the athletes perform superhuman feats. Celebrate the greatness of sport with this authentic poster dating back to the games.  Packaged with its certificate of authenticity, this poster is bound to find its place perfectly into your collection.
