Three Seconds in Munich

My second book will be published Sept. 1. What’s it about? The most controversial finish in the history of sports.

The U.S. basketball team had won 63 games in a row in the Olympics. In 1972, against its Cold War rival, the Soviet Union, the United States won the gold medal game two times. But each time the head of international basketball defied the rules and ordered that 3 seconds be put on the clock to give the Soviets a chance.

The U.S. lost by a point on the final play, and the players became the only Olympic athletes ever to reject their medals – and they have continued to reject them nearly 50 years later.
