Win Salute On DVD
Critically praised documentary, out to own now

Win Salute On DVDAcclaimed documentary Salute tells the true story behind this iconic image, the story of American athletes Tommie Smith, John Carlos and the Australian silver medallist Peter Norman - three Olympic competitors who, in one peaceful but inflammatory moment of political protest as they received their medals on the podium, would destroy their sporting careers and become a seminal and enduring symbol of the Civil Rights struggle. It's out on DVD now but we've got copies to win right here courtesy of Arrow Films.

The picture of the three men on the winner’s podium after the men’s 200 meters final at the 1968 Mexico City Olympics is still considered one of the most powerful images in modern history. Into this atmosphere walked Peter Norman, whose performance had taken the US team by surprise. Who was this unknown sprinter from Australia? He wasn’t a typical sprinter – he was quietly spoken, short-legged and white. In the 200-metres final, he ran the race of his life and split Tommie Smith and John Carlos, winning silver. As they waited for the presentation ceremony, Smith and Carlos told Peter of their plans. One had left behind his pair of black gloves, and at Peter’s suggestion, they wore one each.

The image of the three of them on the dais, heads bowed, the Americans delivering the "Black Salute", is regarded as one of the most powerful images of the 20th century.

Salute is out on DVD now and available right here. To be in with a chance of winning a copy, just answer this question:
