I came across this short video that tells the tale of the US men’s Olympic gymnastic team winning the gold against the odds at the 1984 Summer Games.
I always frowned on the idea that an “asterisk” is usually associated with the win since the Soviet Union chose to boycott those games, seeming the take some luster from the win.
Our guys scores were amazing. Nothing could be taken away from the accomplishment.
Oh – and then there’s the fact that all our guys were very easy on the eyes.
Made for double the TV viewing enjoyment.
