I was curious about the origin of the name 'Questad'. Apparently it is an anglicization of the Norwegian surname 'Kvistad'.
Finish at Olympic Trials Carlos 19.7 WR
Tommie Smith, and Larry Questad
Questad, a multiple NCAA champion and one of the fastest men in the world at the time, preferred to be known as a fast man not the 'fastest white man' as he was often referred to by the press. Though he did not approve of the raised fist gestures of John Carlos and Tommie Smith, he still managed to deal with it and came to better terms later with Smith though not necessarily with Carlos.

Such an interesting article since I knew very little of that. There was a tremendous push at the 1968 Olympic Trials among the Black athletes to sweep the sprints and hurdles but evidently that was not quite possible. I suspect his reaction to the fist-raising had more to do with his raising in Montana and being white than anything else. Peter Norman was just as white but his parents were Salvation Army workers who oozed of compassion and social justice so his reaction was much different. Had those events occurred today during the Trump era, I suspect the chasm between Questand and Carlos and Smith would have been even greater.
