Most of the time controversies at the Olympics have to do with the Games themselves. At the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City, it was the podium antics of two American medallists that created the biggest stir of the Games. The gold medallist from the 200 metres, Tommie Smith, and bronze medallist John Carlos used the occasion to give a 'black power' salute. The IOC, citing a 'misuse of the podium to make a political statement,' sent the two Americans home immediately afterward.

The pledge of allegiance was originally written in 1892 by Francis Bellamy, a socialist magazine writer. When he wrote it for an children’s magazine, he also described a salute that he thought would be appropriate during its recital.
The pledge was aimed towards children, and the magazine also gave free flags away to schools, where the pledge was originally recited. The salute they were taught to give, with one stiff arm outstretched toward the flag, was deemed the “Bellamy salute” after its creator (who had gotten the idea from a salute that the Romans had done).
In the early 1940s, it was noticed that the salute bore a resemblance to a certain other salute being used in Germany at the time (which was based off of the same original Roman salute). As a result, it was formally replaced by Congress with the now-customary hand-on-heart during the pledge.
