Some victories change the course of history: victories of human spirit, of entire nations, of humanity. The legendary ‘three-second’ victory of the Soviet basketball team at the 1972 Munich Olympics is one of those triumphs. For the first time in 36 years, the ‘invincible’ US team was defeated. No one could have imagined it was possible to beat the magnificent Americans at the Olympics...no one except for the Russian, Georgian, Ukrainian, Kazakh, Belarusian and Lithuanian players on the Soviet national basketball team.
