Belgian sculptor Willy Kreitz was entered in three Olympic Winter Games as an ice hockey player (1924 as a substitute, 1928, and 1936) reaching the quarter-finals with Belgium in 1928 as his best result. He took part in three matches in both 1928 and 1936, while playing in Belgium for CPA Antwerpen.
