Banned from '36 Olympics

Discussion in 'Sports and News' started by Evil ... Thy name is Orville Redenbacher!!, Aug 1, 2012.

  1. What happened to Marty Glickman, a member of the U.S. at the time, was just as insulting.

    Did he ever get an apology? Or anything?

    From Avery Brundage???

    I remember after he retired, NBC added him to the crew when the Jets played an exhibition game in Berlin. There's also a film about it making the circuits.

    Wasn't the same Olympics when diver Eleanor Holm got the boot on the boat crossing the Atlantic after drinking all night with sportswriters?

    Sam Stoller, too, along with Glickman. Both were taken off the relay team.

    The "Good 'Ole Days" were so great back then, weren't they?

    While other Jewish athletes were mis-treated, Sam Balter was one of the top scorers on the US basketball team. 1936 was the debut of basketball in the Olympics. In a fit of madness, FIBA showed just how little they knew about the game by having it played outside on a tennis court and trying to bar any player over 6'2". Since they were also playing with something lighter than an actual basketball, jump shots kept getting caught in the wind, giving an edge to the Americans who were the only ones that realized dunking was a thing.
    Also Germany showed everyone how far racial purity could get you when they made history as the only team that has been shutout in Olympic play, losing 20-0 to the Czechs
