From its resumption following the end of WW2 up until the late 1980's, the Olympic Games simply weren't the Olympic Games without political boycotts. In total, there were 108 nation states that boycotted the games in that time period.  This week, Prof. Jörg Krieger  joins us once more for the second installment of our analysis on the pivotal political events that have shaped the modern Olympic Games into its current form. Join us as we discuss the significance of the iconic Black Power Salute and its legacy today, how Cold War tensions played out on the sporting stage, as well as whether or not the "the games must go on" in Tokyo.
