The white man in that photo | GRIOT
Best thing you’ll read on the Internet for a while, I promise. This is one of my top 3 sports pictures of all times, and I didn’t know the full story behind – I’m sure you don’t. 68 and 72 were troubled times and Olympics, I am not sure we progressed that much since.
Strangely, my other two top sports pictures are Ali and Mandela, I am sure you know which ones. And then there’s that photo of Spitz being escorted away from the Olympics in 72, he’s at a London airport and doesn’t have a clue that the Israeli athletes have been killed by the terrorists. Mad world.
Jeepers! What a story.
