Dan...it appears that India won cricket in that year!
Also in 1936, the USA rowing team won, and it was wonderful because they were from the University of Washington, and that is Seattle on the West Coast. However, rowing at that time was dominated by teams on the East Coast.

AND, the family of the coxswain, Bobby Moch, was still living in the tiny timber town when I grew up there, 1955-1962!
Oh...and a couple of years ago there was a best-selling book about how the team won gold in 1936, title THE BOYS IN THE BOAT.
