This great sporting nation shines in disciplines such as swimming, fencing and football. The reputation of Hungarian swimmers is legendary. There have been several world class swimmers due to the quality of the training practiced. Water-Polo, another event which stems from swimming, has produced 13 medals, 7 of them gold. The last time was in Sydney after beating its old Russian rival 13-6 in the final. It hadn't come first since 1976. Hungary has the best sabre fencers in the world, it won seven team golds in a row between 1936 and 1960. And in football, Hungary won three titles between 1952 and 1968. It produced players like Kocsis and Puskas. It should be noted that in tribute to the Hungarian delegation which refused to return home after the Soviet invasion in 1956, the other delegations marched without their flags at the closing ceremony of the Melbourne Olympics.
