    Mexico 1968

    Entitled “Mexico 68”, the official report published in 1969 set a new record at more than 2,300 pages. It consisted of four main volumes (The land; The Organization; The Games; The Cultural Olympiad) plus a set of various memorabilia: medals, tickets and postcards. This “fifth volume” is not widely known. The official report was published in four languages, in the form of two bilingual editions, French and English, and Spanish and German.

    “I never thought of stopping”: marathon man Akhwari on his epic effort at the ’68 Games

    John Stephen Akhwari cramped up and then fell, badly injuring his knee and shoulder, during the men’s marathon at Mexico City 1968. But, despite being barely able to hobble, the part-time Tanzanian farmer refused to stop. Now 78 years old, Akhwari is delighted people still want to hear about the race during which he embodied the term “Olympic spirit”.
