The year 1972 saw two epic contests between the United States and the Soviet Union. The first was American Bobby Fischer defeating Soviet Grandmaster Anatoly Karpov for the world chess championship.

The other took place on a basketball court in Munich in the gold medal game of the Olympics. 

It was one of the most controversial moments in Olympic history, and the ramifications of that game are still reverberating today.
