Olympic gold medals magazine covers


Once in a while, I realize just how much of a magazine geek I am. When I saw the Michael Phelps Sports Illustrated cover this morning, I didn’t think about the iconic poster of Mark Spitz. I recalled the Life magazine cover of Don Schollander that appeared after the 1964 Olympics when I was in the fifth grade. I guess things make a big impression on you when you’re 10 years old.
