    Munich 1972 artistic poster

    Eduardo Chillida had longstanding links with the Olympic Movement: In 1972, he designed one of the official posters for Munich 1972, and, in 1992, one of the posters for the Barcelona 1992 Games. He also produced a silkscreen print for the inauguration of The Olympic Museum in 1993. Copyright : CIO

  • Summer Games Munich 1972 Medal

    Summer Games Munich 1972 Medal

    On the obverse, the traditional goddess of victory, holding a palm in her left hand and a winner’s crown in her right. A design used since the 1928 Games in Amsterdam, created by Florentine artist Giuseppe Cassioli (ITA - 1865-1942) and chosen after a competition organised by the International Olympic Committee in 1921. For these Games, the figure of victory is accompanied by the specific inscription: "XX. Olympiade München 1972". On the reverse, Castor and Pollux, the twin sons of Zeus and Léda, the patrons of sports competitions and friendship, represented by two naked youths. The Organising Committee for the 1972 Games in Munich broke new ground by having a different reverse which was designed by a Bauhaus representative.

    Mascot Munich 1972

    Smoky is an older mascot than Waldi, even if he was not recognised officially. This black Scottish terrier could be seen walking around the Olympic Village for the 1932 Games in Los Angeles wearing the coat we see here. So even if he was not the official mascot of these Games in Los Angeles, Smoky was certainly a very popular feature ©Getty
