COVER


Q. What did this cover inspire ???

Ans. This is Donald Schollander, who won 4 golds in the 64 Olympics making him the recipient of the highest number of medals at a single Olympics. As very evident from his pose, the later holders of this record i.e Mark Spitz and Michael Phelps, paid tribute to him by posing in a similar way.
