ANS: Gold Medallist Tommie Smith, (center) and Bronze medallist John Carlos (right) showing the raised fist on the podium after the 200m in the 1968 Summer Olympics wearing Olympic Project for Human Rights badges. OFTEN CALLED THE ‘BLACK POWER SALUTE’ CAUSED A LOT OF CONTROVERSIES.

Time magazine showed the five-ring Olympic logo with the words, "Angrier, Nastier, Uglier", instead of "Faster, Higher, Stronger"

Protesting against racial discrimination against blacks in USA. They also received support from the Australian (second place), Peter Norman. Don't remember the names of the other two atheletes, but the event is 1968 Mexico city Olympics.
