Mexico City, Mexico - host city of the 1968 Summer Olympics. Officially known as the Games of the XIX Olympiad, these were the first Olympic Games to be staged in Latin America and the first to be staged in a Spanish-speaking country. They were the first Games to use an all-weather (smooth) track for track and field events instead of the traditional cinder track. This was also the first example of the Olympics exclusively using electronic timekeeping equipment.
