Vince Matthews win the 400m at the 1972 Munich Olympics

Athletics - 1972 Munich Olympics - Men's 400m Final
USA's Vince Matthews (#999;right) wins the race in 44.66 with compatriot Wayne Collett (#978) second in 44.80 in the Olympiastadion, Munich, West Germany. Third is Kenya's Julius Sang (#587), and also pictured is West Germany's Karl Honz, who was seventh.
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."
