The 1968 Olympic Games were held in Mexico City, unifying over 5,500 athletes from 112 countries. At 7,350 feet above sea level, Mexico City has by far the highest altitude of any other city to host the Olympics. The thinner air of the high altitude was an advantage for non-endurance events and catastrophic for endurance events as athletes weren’t able to take in as much oxygen as they had during training. Due to the altitude several new records were set for men’s shorter distance track events, including the very notable long jump record set by American Bob Beamon who jumped 8.90 meters.

We at Nate D. Sanders Auctions sold a silver medal from the 1968 Mexico City Olympic Games for $11,942. Please see details below:
