On September 9, 1972, a sudden, shocking turn of events snatched victory from the United States in the Olympic gold medal basketball game in Munich, Germany. Officially, the Soviet Union beat the United States, 51-50, on a desperate basket at the final buzzer. Forty years after that final buzzer sounded, 12 silver medals lay unclaimed in a storage room maintained for the Olympic Museum in Lausanne, Switzerland. History says those silver medals belong to the Americans. The members of the 1972 team, who today still continue the fight for their gold medals, say that "history" is mistaken. All 12 players have been interviewed for this new book.
