Summary

Adolf Hoch sent in a design for a ski jumping stadium to be built on the Kobenzl. Although it would never be actually built, it found fancy with the Olympic judges, who awarded Hoch a gold medal. It was the second consecutive gold medal for Austria in the event, with Hermann Kutschera winning it in 1936. Silver was won by Hoch’s compatriot, Alfred Rinesch. Bronze medallist Nils Olsson was best known for designing several buildings along the Kungsportsavenyen, the main street of his home town Göteborg.
