III Olympic Winter Games

Canada sent a record 59 athletes to the 1932 Games at Lake Placid, New York, and the team came away with 13 performances in the top six. Only the U.S. and Norway won more medals.

Three Canadian speed skaters, Alex Hurd, William Logan and Frank Stack, won a total of one silver and four bronze medals. Canadian champion Montgomery Wilson brought home a bronze medal in men’s figure skating, and the hockey team again won gold, but this time it wasn’t as easy.

Adding to its string of Olympic gold medals, Canada had won the world hockey championship in 1930 and 1931. In Lake Placid, the Winnipeg Hockey Club defeated the U.S. 2-1 in the first game of the tournament. Both teams went on to defeat their two other opponents and met once again in the final. Canada needed a win or a tie to retain the gold medal. With less than six minutes remaining in the final game, the U.S. was leading 2-1 when Canada’s Romeo Rivers bounced a shot past the U.S. goaltender to tie the score. In three overtime periods, neither team could score and the game was called. The Canadians were declared Olympic hockey champions once again.
