1936 Olympic Programme Cover Gufex Puck : 1998 Olympics 
The Olympic Games of 1920 in Antwerp were Summer Olympics. This is a strange fact in ice hockey history. Ice hockey was a "demonstration sport" at that Olympics. The winners could not call themselves Olympic champions. Later in that year the IIHF gave the Olympic ice hockey tournament World Championship status and Canada became the first World Champions in ice hockey.
i. The World Championships were a combined tournament with the Olympics in 1920, 1924, 1928, 1932, 1936, 1948, 1952, 1956, 1960, 1964 & 1968.
ii.The European Championships were a combined tournament with the Olympics/World Championships in 1928, 1936, 1948, 1952, 1956, 1960, 1964 & 1968. Results between European teams at the Olympics/World Championships determined the places in the European Championships.
Olympics (Women)
Gufex Puck : 1998 Olympics
