Is there any type of main image anyone can get for this to make this look similar to the other pages of the Olympic Games?
A program cover, official logo, etc.?
The Participation map is incorrect. While North Korea is shown to have been the only Korea at the games, it was actually South Korea who participated. Is it possible to fix this? 188.8.131.52 03:18, 5 April 2007 (UTC)
Does anyone remember that George Foreman (a pretty famous American) won Gold and waved the American flag? Why is this not mentioned? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 03:42, 11 February 2010 (UTC)
Hi. The photograph that appears in the site under was shot during the Closing Ceremonies of the Games and therefore it is an inaccuracy. The Opening Ceremonies was made at 11:00 hours on Saturday October 12th, 1968 and the closing ceremonies was the Sunday October 27th, 1968 at 17:00 hours.Nekko09 (talk) 02:03, 10 December 2011 (UTC)
Unsourced unprecedent research shouldn't be encouraged in wikipedia
To claim that that Olympics, in 1968, were the first outside first-world countries is pathetic. Because (1) the concept of first-world and third-world countries didn't even exist when the first games were held, in 1896. Thus, the affirmation is already impossible. (2) How Soviet Finland, recently liberated by USSR in 1952, ravaged by a bloody war with multiple fronts, was a first-world country back in those games? That's absurd! There isn't a reliable source for that because that's unprecedent research! To claim that "all games prior to Mexico were held in first-world countries" will make any History professor laugh. Please provide a source for your research before inserting that information again. MarcosPassos (talk)
