A jubilant American long sprinter Tommie Smith raises his arms as he crosses the finish line to set a new world and Olympic record at the 19th Olympics in Mexico City, October 17, 1968. Smith and his bronze-winning teammate John Carlos (far left, number 259) would cause controversy at their medal ceremony when they raised gloved hands in the 'Black Power' salute (an upraised fist) during the playing of the Star Spangled Banner.
