The "Blood In The Water" match (in Hungarian Melbourne-i vrfrdQ, "Blood Bath" of Melbourne) was a water polo match between Hungary and the USSR at the 1956 Melbourne Olympics and is arguably the most famous match in water polo history. The match, which happened on December 6, 1956, was played out against the background of the 1956 Hungarian Revolution and saw Hungary defeat the USSR 40. The name was coined by the media after Hungarian player Ervin Zdor emerged from the pool during the last two minutes in the game with blood pouring from under his eye after being punched by a Soviet player.
