The Voyage of the 1932 Brazilian Olympic team

In 1932, with the world going through the Great Depression, Brazil had no money to send its Olympic team to Los Angeles.

Then a government official had an idea—load a ship with 50,000 bags of coffee, and have the Olympic team sell the cargo to fund the entire trip.

Titus O'Reily and Mick Molloy look at a strange trip which included pretending the ship was a warship, and civil war breaking out.

Titus O'Reily and Mick Molloy are excited to announce the launch of Bizarre Plus, the new Membership program for even more Sports Bizarre.
