Newspaper : ‘Argentina to disrupt Olympics’

The article, written by Isabel Oakeshott and Declan McGarvey for The Sunday Times, explained that “the Olympic Games could be used as a platform for a black power-style protest over the Malvinas Islands, the government fears” and stated that “ministers are worried about a possible demonstration by Argentine athletes similar to the one staged at the 1968 Games in Mexico City by African-American athletes at the men’s 200m medal ceremony.”
