To keep the thread alive, here is a video from Athens 2004. With some very lively commentary. :d And a lively performance.

...1968 the year of the start of the so-called "inter-comunist cold hockey war"... There is absolutely no doubt that the most emotionally charged games in the history of international hockey were the matches between Czechoslovakia and the Soviet Union at 1969 IIHF World Championship in Stockholm. These were the games which the Czechoslovaks simply could not lose. but in fact everything started 1 year ago, in this famous match in Grenoble... already at that time it was felt something wrong and manacing in the air...

 

“We said to ourselves, even if we have to die on the ice, we have to beat them,” said team captain Jozef Golonka in an interview many years later. “We received hundreds of telegrams from fans back home. Almost all of them said: ‘Beat the Soviets. You don’t have to beat anyone else. Just beat the Soviets.’”

 

btw Golonka is the man at 2:31, knocking with his stick on the ice, and singing something not publishable. one of the most provocative moment in sport history :lol: but at those times extremely sweet...thanks god those times disappeared forever

Here are some videos of eventing (cross-country) from Berlin Olympics in 1936. This was the first time that water jumps were used so it caused a lot of problems, :d Though, that particular water jump was craziness.
