Olympics – 1984 Los Angeles – Water Polo – Medal Ceremony – YUG Gold & USA Silver


Although the USA Olympics men’s water polo team went undefeated…..resulting from the tie with Yugoslavia in the finals of the men’s water polo competition….the Americans lost the gold to Yugoslavia when their total goal differential for the entire competition came up short of the Yugoslavs….leaving the Yanks with the silver medal…..as you could see the frustration in the faces of the US players on the medal stand….having taken a 3 goal lead in the finals….only to have the Yugoslavians tie it up in the final minutes of the match.
