Winner's Photo

In likely the most stunning upset in Olympic hockey until 1980, Great Britain beat Canada 2-1 in the first round of play -- a result that carried over to the medal round and cost Canada her fifth consecutive gold medal. Great Britain's winning goal was scored by Edgar Brenchley with just 1:12 left in the third period. Ironically, the British were led by the brilliant goaltending of Jimmy Foster, born in Canada but recently repatriated by the UK. He continued his stellar play in the medal round, recording consecutive shutouts against the Czechs and Americans.
