Inspiring Olympians


Help us count down to the 2012 Summer Olympics by posting about Inspiring Olympic athletes on our Facebook Page!

Tommie Smith is an inspiring Olympian whose legacy lives on today. At Until There’s A Cure, we are inspired by individuals who take a stand for a cause they believe in. The Olympics are not only a time for astounding athletic ability but also positive social movement and change. In 1968 when Tommie Smith and John Carlos raised their fists during the national anthem after placing in the 200-meter dash, they created an everlasting symbol of the determination of the human spirit. Tommie Smith inspires us, an athlete who took a stand against injustice and furthered the fight for racial equality during a tumultuous time for America.
