Soviet and American basketballers meet in battle. It was the first time they had met in the Soviet Union.
First into the arena was the National Women's team from the U.S.A. (wearing dark) - world champions. But the Soviet team puts up such a good show that they end up the victors.
Next came the men's teams from both countries. The United States (wearing dark) are also world champions; and a superb technique wins them the match, although the Russians forced them to work hard for their victory.
