USSR When you think of the greatest moments in sports history, you think about Jackie Robinson's first game as a major leaguer, Michael Phelps winning eight gold medals during the 2008 Summer Olympics or the Boston Red Sox kicking the Curse of the Bambino in 2004.

While all of these moments in sports history had deep political, cultural or downright inspiring outcomes, nothing really compares to when Rocky Balboa took on Ivan Drago in Soviet Russia and essentially ended the Cold War.

We all remember it and if you were too young to witness it live, you still know about it. The Italian Stallion took on the Berlin Wall in defense of his country, his family and in remembrance of his fallen friend, Apollo Creed. We've all seen the captivating documentary, "Rocky IV," but now the critically acclaimed ESPN documentary series, "30 for 30," has revisited this story 30 years later and it's just as riveting and soul stirring as it was in 1985.

Watch the five-minute doc and become inspired all over again.
