Hello, Smith and Carlos never had their medals revoked. Source: Canadian Broadcasting Co., "Mexico City 1968: The World is Watching," http://archives.cbc.ca/400d.asp?id=1-41-1289-7330&wm6=1. The IOC recognizes Smith and Carlos as medalists. Source: IOC, "Medal Winners Search," http://www.olympic.org/uk/athletes/results/search_r_uk.asp. I hope this answer meets your needs. If not, please request clarification. Search strategy: Smith Carlos medals returned ://www.google.com/search?q=Smith+Carlos+medals+returned&hl=cs&ie=UTF-8

Hello lsid1210. I'm pretty sure that if their medals had been restored to them it would have been mentioned in this article. "Distant fists return Carlos and Smith, whose victory-stand protest is an indelible Olympic moment, are 2nd fiddle to fashion" http://www.newsday.com/sports/olympics/ny-spotrackjul15,0,7962320.story?coll=ny-sports-olympics-headlines Regards THX1138
