1936 GARMISCH-PARTENKIRCHEN, GERMANY
Canada’s streak of men’s hockey gold came to an end when, in the final round robin match between Great Britain and Canada, British-born, Canadian-raised Edgar Brenchley scored in the last 90 seconds of the game to give the Brits a 2-1 win. It was Canada’s first loss in an Olympic ice hockey game since the sport was introduced at the 1920 Summer Olympics. Canada shut out Czechoslovakia and the U.S. to claim the silver, its only medal of the Games.
Also in 1936, the IOC ruled that Germany could not exclude Jews from its Olympic team. Only one, however, Rudi Ball, represented the host country, returning from exile to play hockey.
