This is the biography of Peter Norman, the silver-medal-winning Australian athlete, who at the 1968 Mexico City Olympic Games stood on the dais and proudly wore a civil rights badge as a silent protest against racial discrimination. Alongside him, African-American athletes Tommie Smith and John Carlos were immortalised forever as they raised their black-gloved fists into the air in the so-called 'Black Power' salute. Peter Norman was an Olympian, activist, humanist, father, and Australia's most successful Olympic male sprinter. This book celebrates him as an eminent figure of our sporting and social history.
