The first Olympic basketball tournament was organized by FIBA in the 1936 Summer Olympics at Berlin as an outdoor tournament. The medals were given away by Dr. Naismith to the top three teams. In order to sustain the Olympic tradition, all the competitors in the game were amateurs, and FIBA introduced the indoor game in the 1948 Summer Olympics. The game was won victoriously by the Americans, winning all of the Olympic tournaments until the 1972 Summer Olympics when the Soviet Union national basketball team bags the credit of winning the gold-medal in the game in highly controversial circumstances.
