USA USSR 1980 Olympic Hockey It was one of the greatest moments in American sports history--but very few Americans saw it when it actually happened. The 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team was made up of college players. (North American professionals were ineligible until 1998.) The Soviet Union's state-sponsored "amateurs" had dominated Olympic hockey, winning gold medals in 1956, 1964, 1968, 1972, and 1976. In an exhibition game prior to the 1980 Olympics, the USSR manhandled the awe-struck Americans 10-3 at Madison Square Garden. However, in the medal round of the Lake Placid Olympics, the Americans pulled off an enormous upset, beating the mighty Soviets 4-3. Only those Americans who lived close enough to the Canadian border to pick up CTV's feed actually saw the game live. ABC only showed a tape-delayed broadcast later that evening. (ABC did not want to deprive soap opera fans from seeing General Hospital that day!) Watch the last 90 seconds of the game and listen as a young Al Michaels makes his famous call: 'Do you believe in miracles? Yes!' Two days later the Americans defeated Finland for the gold medal.

Denver Declines 1976 Winter Olympics Remember Denver hosting the 1976 Winter Olympics? No? That's because the Colorado capital was supposed to host the Games but didn't. In May 1970, the International Olympic Committee chose Denver to host '76 Winter Games ahead of bids from locales in Switzerland, Finland, and Canada. The USOC was ecstatic, but the taxpayers of Colorado were far less enthusiastic when they learned they would be footing much of the Games' costs. Within a very short time, an anti-Games movement grew in the state. During the 1972 election campaign, a plebiscite asked Coloradoans what they thought about a $5-million bond issue to finance the Games. On the same night Richard Nixon was re-elected, Colorado voters rejected the bond issue by a substantial 60/40 ratio. (In retrospect, that $5 million would have only covered a small fraction of the Games' actual costs.) A week after the voters spoke, Denver officially withdrew as the host city for 1976 Winter Olympics. The Games were hastily given to Innsbruck, Austria--where the 1964 Games had been held--because the facilities were already in place.

Conan OBrien Conquers Finland Back in 2006, late-night talk show host Conan O'Brien learned he closely resembled Finland's president Tarja Halonen. After using this for laughs for a few weeks, it was only natural that O'Brien would be invited to tour the Scandanavian country. It was a huge success!

USA-Finland Gold Medal Game 1980 Many people wrongly assume that when the American hockey team beat the Soviet Union 4-3 in Lake Placid they captured the 1980 Olympic gold medals. Nope. The modified round-robin format of the tournament meant the Americans still had to play Finland two days later--and win--to assure themselves of the gold. In this clip Rob McLanahan scores a third-period goal to put the USA up 3-2. The home team eventually won 4-2 to take all the marbles.

1940 Olympics Poster The 1940 Summer Olympics were originally scheduled to be held in Tokyo. With Japan deeply embroiled in the Second World War, those plans were scuttled. The International Olympic Committee opted to move the Games to Helsinki, Finland, as this poster shows. This also proved to be impractical when the Finns began fighting the Russians. The IOC sensibly chose to suspend the Games until the war stopped. (Helsinki hosted the 1952 Summer Olympics. Tokyo got the 1964 Games.)

Winning Goal - 1976 Canada Cup The best hockey teams in the world had never met in an open tournament format before the 1976 Canada Cup event. Six countries competed in the inaugural event: Canada, USSR, USA, Sweden, Finland and Czechoslovakia. Canada and the Czechs advanced to the best-of-three final. Canada won the first game easily, 6-0. Game Two at the Montreal Forum produced a memorable moment in Canadian sports history: With the score deadlocked at 4-4 after regulation time, Darryl Sittler netted the Canada Cup-winning goal. Assistant coach Don Cherry had advised the Canadian players that Czech goalie Vladimir Dzurilla often ventured too far from his net and might be susceptible to being drawn out of position. Sittler followed Cherry's advice perfectly.

Bannister-Landy Miracle Mile 1954 One of the most famous track-and-field events of all time occurred on August 7, 1954. In May 1954 England's 25-year-old Roger Bannister became the first runner to record a sub-four-minute mile when he ran a 3:59.4 race at Oxford. About six weeks later, Australia's John Landy, age 24, claimed the world record by running the mile in an unheard of 3:58 flat in Finland. The two men would meet head-to-head in the British Empire Games in Vancouver in August 1954 in a race as eagerly anticipated as any in history. Landy had a reputation for establishing an insurmountable early lead in races and coasting to wins. Bannister, however, was known for possessing a strong finishing kick. This rare clip is from the CBC archives in Canada; it shows the entire race. Two things to watch: Look at how the front-running Landy constantly looks behind him to see where Bannister is. Also notice that every activity on the infield came to a standstill as all eyes were glued to the "Miracle Mile" race unfolding on the track.
