Mexico 1968 "Aztec Calendar" Jacket
Reference : JCKMX68XP
The choice of Mexico City to host the 1968 Olympic Games proved controversial because of the city’s high altitude.
The 2,300m height proved an advantage in explosive events such as short-distance running, jumping, throwing and weightlifting. But the rarefied air proved disastrous for endurance athletes.
The Games set records in several sports, but the most memorable was Bob Beamon’s spectacular long jump of 8.90m – a world best that was to stand for 22 years.
Add something special to your wardrobe with this officially licensed 80% ring-spun cotton/20% polyester full-zip, knit collar fleece jacket.
The jacket’s lower left pocket is embroidered with the official Games logo on it, while the back sports a stunning detailed embroidered Aztec calendar – paying homage to the ancient inhabitants of Mexico.
Each purchase supports the Olympic Movement – so as well as looking good you can take pride in the knowledge that your purchase helps the world’s greatest sporting event.
