1936 Winter Olympics Gold Medal Champions

The British national ice Hockey team pulled off a major upset when they won the gold medal, marking a number of firsts in international ice Hockey competition.

Great Britain made history as the first team ever to win an Olympic, World, and European (its second) Championships and the first to win all three in the same year.

They were the first team to stop Canada from winning the Olympic ice Hockey gold, following Canada's four consecutive gold medals.

Great Britain also became the first European nation to win the World Championships, following eight wins by Canada and one by the United States.
