#8490 - Los Angeles 1984 Summer Olympics Silver Winner’s Medal Estimate: $20,000+

Brazil takes silver at LA's 1984 Summer Games

Sought-after winner's medal issued for the Los Angeles 1984 Summer Olympics. Silver, 63.5 mm, 137 gm, by Dugald Stermer. The front, inscribed, "XXIII Olympiad, Los Angeles 1984," features a 'Seated Victory' with the Colosseum in the background; the reverse portrays a victorious athlete being carried by a jubilant crowd. The edge is engraved with the name of the event, "Volleyball Men." Complete with original magenta, vermillion, and chrome yellow ribbon and the original blue velvet presentation case.

After a fifth place finish four years earlier at the 1980 Moscow Summer Olympics, the Brazilian men’s volleyball team were among the favorites to medal at the 1984 LA Games. Brazil recorded a 3-1 record in the preliminary round before moving on to convincingly beat eventual bronze medal winners Italy in the semifinals. Brazil faced off with the US team in the gold medal match at the Long Beach Arena on August 11, and although Brazil had soundly beaten the Americans 3-0 in their earlier preliminary match, they were unable to overcome a determined US squad, losing in straight sets, 45-19. The Brazilian men’s volleyball team earned the gold medal at the Barcelona 1992 Summer Olympics.
