Garmisch-Partenkirchen 1936

Garmisch-Partenkirchen 1936

After Berlin was awarded the 1936 Olympic Games, Germany exercised its right to also host the 1936 Olympic Winter Games, choosing the Bavarian resort of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, an amalgamation of two towns on either side of the River Partnach. Canada’s only medal once again came in ice hockey, but for the first time it wasn’t gold.
