1936 GARMISCH-PARTENKIRCHEN, GER­MANY

Ottawa Citizen - - WINTER OLYMPICS -

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.
