Synopsis by Dan Pavlides

This two hour documentary covers the 1968 Olympic games held in Mexico City. Highlights include swimmer Debbie Meyers setting a world record and Bob Beamon establishing a new mark for the broad jump. Dick Fosbury, inventor of the Fosbury Flop, sets the mark in the high jump while Iranian Mohammad Nasiri wins the bantamweight weight lifting competition. Narration provided by Allan Jefferys fails to live up to the excitement of the events.
