Gymnastics at the 1948 Summer Olympics
Shortly after the Czech team arrived in London, 22 year old team member Eliška Misáková was taken ill and confined to an iron lung. She died of infantile paralysis on the same day that her teammates competed. When the Czech flag was raised at the medal ceremony, it was bordered with a black ribbon.
