Biography

Werner Leinweber was an ice hockey goalie (the only one of the 1932 team) who played for EV Füssen. He won a bronze medal at the 1932 Winter Olympics, and was later inducted into the German Ice Hockey Hall of Fame. In 1932 the German Ice Hockey Federation DEV could only support the team with 2,000 Reichsmarks. The German manager and team chef Hermann “Männe” Kleeberg had friends in America who organized some “sponsoring” games for the national team, so that they could earn enough money to start in Lake Placid. Germany lost all four games against Canada and the United States, but defeated Poland twice to earn the bronze medal.
