In 1972, the Munich Olympic Games closed on September 10. Although known for many memorable sporting moments - Olga Korbut's debut, Mark Spitz's 7 golds, Lasse Viren's double golds, and more - the Games are best known for the September 5th kidnapping and later massacre of 9 Israeli delegation members. To say the least, that moment probably served as an unfortunate catalyst for using the Games as political opportunity and forging strict security concerns going forward.
