This was the song that played while it showed Spitz glowing over his medal wins and in the pool.

Then in the opening of the '88 winter games in Calgary, Gordon Lightfoot did Alberta Bound and Four Strong Winds.

Both of those years Olympic games were my favourites.
I have the same problem that Winston had. I can't see that video and there is just a black bar, so I clicked the YOUTUBE link on your video. I don't have another browser so hope it fixes itself soon.

Another song is
Queen - We are the Champions.


(We are not doing too badly in the medal table!).
