Athletics - 1972 Munich Olympics - Men's 200m Final
The runners approach the bend in the Olympiastadion, Munich, West Germany. Left to right: East Germany's Siegfried Schenke (#344), the USA's Larry Burton (#976), the USSR's Valeriy Borzov (#932), West Germany's Martin Jellinghaus (#371), the USA's Chuck Smith (#1016), Italy's Pietro Mennea (#528), and the USA's Larry Black (#973).
Borzov dominated the final, winning the gold by almost two metres over Black who took silver, with Italy's Pietro Mennea finishing third. Borzov's win completed a 100m/200m double, the first sprinter from outside North America to achieve this. Fourth-place finisher Larry Burton later played for five years in the NFL as a wide receiver for the New Orleans Saints and San Diego Chargers

USA's (left to right) Vince Matthews, John Smith, and Wayne Collett in the Olympiastadion, Munich, West Germany. Pre-race favourite Smith pulled up injured early in the race while Matthews took gold and Collett silver.
Unfortunately, the US Success was tarnished 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
