VI Olympic Winter Games

These were the first edition of the Winter Games to be hosted in Scandinavia, the birthplace of numerous winter sports disciplines.

At the 1952 Games in Oslo, Canada was represented on the hockey rink by the Edmonton Mercurys. The Mercurys won their first seven games and ended the tournament with a 3-3 tie against a strong U.S. team. The tie won the gold medal for Canada. Canada wouldn’t capture gold again in hockey for 50 years.

Canadian speed skater Gordon Audley won a bronze in the 500 meter event. It was at this rink that Hjalmar Andersen dominated, capturing 3 of the 4 Olympic titles on the line.
