The cartoon shows two men in a wide open field. One of them is talking to the other. Refers to the controversy surrounding the 1980 Olympic games held in Moscow. An American lead boycott of the games, due to the Russian invasion of Afghanistan, was the main feature of the games and as a result only four New Zealand athletes competed.
