U.S. Olympians, John Carlos call on IOC to abolish anti-protest rule



:picture:

Tommie Smith and John Carlos, gold and bronze medalists in the 200-meter run at the 1968 Olympic Games, engage in a victory stand protest against unfair treatment of blacks in the United States. With heads lowered and black-gloved fists raised in the black power salute, they refuse to recognize the American flag and national anthem. Australian Peter Norman is the silver medalist.


Tommie Smith and John Carlos, who raised fists after winning medals at the 1968 Olympics, were expelled from the Games. Now Carlos has joined active U.S. athletes in pressuring the IOC to change. (Getty)
