The 16th October will mark the 50th Anniversary of our Victorian Olympic Silver medallist, Australian & Oceania 200m record holder the late Peter Norman.
This day and significant moment in history was when Peter Norman stood proudly on the dais at the 1968 Mexico Olympics with USA athletes Tommy Smith and Johnny Carlos.
Peter Norman was more than an Olympian and one of the fastest men ever. He was a humanitarian who stood for human equality. Peter Norman wore the badge, “The Olympic Project for Human Rights”. He stood silently in protest.
