Subject: [CR]Campagnolo HiLo Record rear hub

Here's something I've always wondered about:

1982 Olympic Catalog is printed for the year-end trade shows. Included are the Campagnolo freewheel and wood boxed freewheel tool set along with the Super Record front derailleur with black anodized arms, three holes and braze on fitting option, the HiLo Record rear hub (reputed to be originally custom-made for the West German Olympic Team in 1972)...

I think there are a bunch of German collectors on the CR list at this point. Can any of you confirm or deny the rumor that the HiLo hub was originally made for the West German Olympic Team in '72?
