Subject: [CR]Cycling in 1936 Berlin Olympics

I'm trying to track down information about the original owner of my Velox track bike. He is said to have used it in the 1936 Olympic games in Berlin. His name, written in india ink on the wooden wheel rims, is V. Zagroski.

Can anyone point me to a source of Olympics cycling history which may have recorded the names of the participants? I suppose it's possible that Mr. Zagroski rode for Poland or the USSR, etc. rather than for the United States but it would have been very strange to do so astride a Drysdale bicycle.
