Another Hero passes away

I just heard the sad news of the passing of Peter Norman. He was a hero not so much for being one of Australia's best sprinters ever (he still holds the Australian record for the 200m that he had held for 38 years) but for being apart of one of the most famous photos of any Olympics, the famous black power salute picture. He had won the silver and had been told by the two black Americans that they were going to do. Not only did he not object, but actively supported them by wearing a civil rights badge.
