USA v Croatia – Barcelona 1992 Gold Medal Game

This week, being a flashback episode for #believethehype, I thought i’d throw a flashback to the 1992 Barcelona Olympic’s Gold Medal Game. USA v Croatia, Jordan v Petrovic in one of the most anticipated basketball games in the history of international competition.

Hope you enjoy Australian TV Network Channel 7’s commentary of the game.
