1956 Water Polo

The last time Australia hosted the Olympics, in 1956, Hungary was a power in water polo, and scored a victory over the Soviet Union. It was important because at the time, Hungary was trying to win a real war back home against the Soviets. Robert talks to Ervin Zador, who was injured in that 1956 game. Since then he's been coaching water polo and swimming in the United States.
