Coca Cola 1984 Los Angeles Summer Olympic Games pin sponsor set, framed

$35.00

Get ready for Pyeongchang! Okay so this was a Summer Olympics, but the Olympics are awesome, both winter and summer. Who could forget the 1984 Olympics in LA, featuring some of the greatest speed on Earth, namely the first Olympic appearance of one very fast man, Carl Lewis. This is a great crossover item appealing to both Coke and Olympic collectors!

Here's a snapshot of the Los Angeles Summer Olympiad to shine things up a bit:

Track and fieldEdit

Carl Lewis of the United States, making his first of four appearances at the Olympics, equaled the 1936 performance of Jesse Owens by winning four gold medals, in the 100 m, 200 m, 4 × 100 m relay and long jump.

Edwin Moses of the United States won the gold medal in the 400m hurdles 8 years after winning in 1976.

Joaquim Cruz of Brazil won the 800 meter run with a time of 1:43.00 to set an Olympic record.

Nawal El Moutawakel of Morocco became the first female Olympic champion of a Muslim nation—and the first of her country—in the 400 m hurdles.

Carlos Lopes, from Portugal, won the Marathon at the age of 37, with a time of 2:09:21, an Olympic record that stood for 24 years. It was the first gold medal ever for Portugal. Gold medal favorite, World Record holder and the then World Champion, Robert de Castella from Australia, finished in 5th place, 1:48 behind Lopes.

A marathon for women was held for the first time at the Olympics (won by Joan Benoit of the U.S.). The event was considered notable because of Swiss runner Gabi Andersen-Schiess, who – suffering from heat exhaustion – stumbled through the last lap, providing dramatic images.

Daley Thompson of Great Britain apparently missed a new world record in winning his second consecutive gold medal in the decathlon; the next year his score was retroactively raised to 8847, giving him the record.

Sebastian Coe of Great Britain became the first man to win consecutive gold medals in the 1500m.

The first gold medal to be awarded at the Los Angeles Olympics was also the first-ever medal to be won by an athlete from China when Xu Haifeng won the 50 m Pistolevent.

Archer Neroli Fairhall from New Zealand was the first paraplegic Olympian at any Olympic Games, coming 35th in the Women's individual event.

Synchronized swimming and rhythmic gymnastics debuted in Los Angeles as Olympic events, as did wind surfing.
