What was the result of this kind of protest in an Olympic game?

Answer:

  • The International Olympic Association held Carlos and Smith guilty of violating the Olympic spirit by making a political statement.
  • Their medals were taken back. Back home, they were subjected to a lot of criticism.
  • Silver medalist, Norman from Australia, also suffered for his support and was not included in the Australian team for the next Olympics.
