Olympic 400m winner Vince Matthews shows his disinterest in the medal ceremony in Munich in 1972

Athletics - 1972 Munich Olympics - Men's 400m Medal Presentation
USA's gold medal winner Vince Matthews (facing camera) shows his disinterest in the ceremony, while silver medalist and compatriot Wayne Collett stands alongside him on the no.1 tier in the Olympiastadion, Munich, West Germany. Also pictured is Kenya's bronze medalist Julius Sang.
The success was overshadowed by the suspension of Matthews and Collett by the IOC after the medal ceremony, where they were talking to each other and fidgeting while the US national anthem played, leading many to believe it was a Black Power protest like that of Tommie Smith and John Carlos in 1968.
Collett stated afterwards "I couldn't stand there and sing the words because I don't believe they're true. I wish they were. I believe we have the potential to have a beautiful country, but I don't think we do."
