For the first time in 40 years, the 1972 Olympic Basketball Team reunited today in Lexington.

The players reminisced about their experience in Munich. They laughed at the light-hearted moments and remembered the tragic massacre of the Israeli athletes at that Olympics.

They also talked about the moment they say they were robbed of the gold medal to the Soviet Union in the championship game.

Doug Collins, Philadelphia 76ers Head Coach, also gave a presentation called, “Courage in Munich.” For more information about this, click here.
