After leading the USSR to a gold medal at the 1988 Seoul Olympics, Lithuanian basketball stars Sarunas Marciulionis and Arvydas Sabonis were poster boys for their oppressor's sports machine. Years later, they emerged as symbols of democracy, helping their country break free from the shackles of Communism and willing the newly independent Lithuania to the medal stand at the Barcelona Olympics. An inspiring underdog story of the highest order, The Other Dream Team (by Marius A. Markevicius, 2012) documents the Lithuanians' brutal experience behind the Iron Curtain and their triumphant emergence as liberators.
