Notes[edit]

  1. ^ The 1936 official Olympic Report has the silver medalists listed as Josef Kampfl and Alois Edeltitsch, but information from Olympisch Enzyklopaedie (German), the Austrian Olympic Committee, and from Volker Kluge's Olympia Chronik (German) all confirm that the actual silver medalists were Weinstabl and Proisl.
