The 1936 Winter Olympics, officially known as the IV Olympic Winter Games, were a winter multi-sport event which was celebrated in 1936 in the market town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen in Bavaria, Germany. Germany also hosted the Summer Olympics the same year in Berlin. 1936 is the last year in which the Summer and Winter Games were both held in the same country (the cancelled 1940 games would have been held in Japan, with that country likewise hosting the Winter and Summer games).

Montgomery "Bud" Wilson (August 20, 1909 – November 15, 1964) was a Canadian figure skater. Competing in men's singles, he became the 1932 Olympic bronze medalist, the 1932 World silver medalist, a six-time North American champion, and a nine-time Canadian national champion. He holds the record for the most Canadian titles won by any skater.

In 2003, Wilson was inducted into the Professional Skaters Association Coaches Hall of Fame.
