the domination of communism in the world

Blood in water

A symbolic clash took place on 6 December 1956 during the Melbourne Olympic Games. In
the match, the teams of Hungary and the USSR stood against each other. The match was very
brutal, the players provoked each other. At the end of the competition, one of the Soviet
players, upset by the biased, in his opinion, refereeing, struck Ervin Zádor and cut his
eyebrow. The water coloured red, which caused a violent reaction of the supporters (most of
them supporting the Hungarians). The meeting was interrupted, and the Hungarians won 4:0,
later also winning the entire Olympics. Some athletes did not return to their homeland.
