Cosell than passes the program over to Jim McKay at the Medal Ceremony for the 1984 Olympics men’s volleyball competition….with the United States team winning the 1st gold medal in US Olympic men’s volleyball history…..for never before had the USA team ever graced the medal stage on the top step of the medal stand….but here they were winning gold in the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic Games.
