The Olympic Games have provided many powerful visual stories thanks to unforgettable sporting moments but also to evocative design and presentation, exemplified by Leni Riefenstahl's groundbreaking film of the 1936 Berlin Games. This thoughtful analysis considers the design of posters, medals and stadia over the years as well as the resonance of images such as the terrorist in the athletes' village at the Munich Games and the American sprinters' Black Power salute in Mexico City.
