1936 Ice Hockey Olympic gold medal

At the 1936 Winter Games in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, the British men's ice hockey team made history by winning their first ever Olympic gold medal.

The team, who were the first to win Olympic, World, and European Championship titles, was led by captain Carl Erhardt, who also had a non-playing role at the 1948 Winter Games.

Great Britain have not qualified for an Olympics since then, but stand three matches away from reaching Sochi 2014.

Carl Erhardt passed away in 1988, but BBC Sport's Nick Hope visited his son Philip, who shows off the 1936 gold medal and sends a good luck message to the Great Britain team.
