MATTHEWS Vince (1947) COLLETT Wayne (1949) United States / Track and Field
At Munich, Vince Matthews took the gold in the 400 m, with Wayne Collet in second place. On the podium, they were astonishingly nonchalant, twiddling their medals in their fingers while the Stars and Stripes was playing.They did it in support of equal rights for Blacks in the United States.Immediately, IOC President Avery Brundage expelled them from the American team.With its two best members gone, the US relay team was unable to retain the 4x400 m title it had won in Mexico City four years earlier.
