REBEL WITHOUT A MEDAL

TOMMIE SMITH

Former Olympic hero Tommie Smith is selling his Gold Medals from the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City. Smith and fellow American John Carlos became famous after giving the “Black Power” fist on the Olympic podium following their victory in the 200 meters relay.

Smith wants at least $100,000 for the medal but is throwing in his shoes.
