4 years ago, the London 2012 Olympics were the 20th anniversary of the unforgettable 1992 USA basketball/Track and field 'DREAM TEAM' from the Olympic's in Barcelona. This year, to celebrate the run up to Team USA's efforts in Rio, Nike are releasing a series of Team USA inspired sneakers using red white and blue colour-ways with stars and straps added.
All this talk of Team USA has reminded us of the 'DREAM TEAM', who stormed the courts and tracks in Barcelona game after game, event after event, taking no prisoners and almost DOUBLING the opposing teams scores more than once across the basketball tournament, and beating home nation Spain 122 - 81.
The basketball team consisted of: Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley, Patrick Ewing and Scottie Pippen, and that is just to name a few. Wow! What a line up.
The track and field events were also stormed by the USA contestants, across both male and female events, taking home 12 gold medals in the events. To celebrate this, and in hope that '16 Team USA will live up to the reputation, Nike are rereleasing the world famous Pegasus '92 from the tracks this year.
