1984 Silver Medal from the Games of the XXIII Olympiad

Awarded to Kim Gallagher of the U.S. for placing second in the women’s 800m race. The 1984 Olympic Games involved a boycott of all member nations for the third consecutive time. The Soviet Union & 13 allied countries boycotted in a reaction to the U.S.’ boycott (Moscow – 1980). This resulted in one of the most lopsided Summer Games in 80 years. The U.S. won a record 83 gold medals. The rising star was Mary Lou Retton. This was also the first ever privately financed Games. It resulted in a $215 million profit! Front of silver medal is raised image of Roman goddess with “XXIII Olympiad Los Angeles 1984”. Back is winner raised onto shoulders of men. “Athletics 800 meters – Women” engraved onto edge.
