Thiel is a German name, this athlete was born and died in Germany (near the Dutch border), so it is unclear what his relationship with Czechoslovakia was, and difficult to assign a nationality to him. I chose Czech because that's what the majority of Czechoslovak athletes are.

He played in the semifinal against Czechoslovakia and in the final against France, but when that one was lost, Belgium needed to play two more matches in order to get the silver. Thiry did not play in those, but I award him with the points for bronze anyway.
