50 years ago, Australian athlete Peter Norman won a silver medal at the 1968 Mexico Olympics.

Peter set the current Australian record by running the 200 metres in 20.06 seconds.

However, it’s not the medal or the record that made Peter an Australian hero, but his support of human rights.

Listen as Fairsy speaks with Peter’s nephew, Matt Norman, about The Peter Norman Story, and how taking a stand cost him his career, but helped to change the world.
