[1] has all the games and the crosstable as well as a lot of organisational data. The fact that this Olympiad was held in Israel caused some commotion and many teams did not participate. This was the first time the Olympiad was held according to the Swiss system. The Belgian team didn’t do very well, with the exception of Rooze and Schumacher. The latter scored 6/9 on the last board, which nowadays suffices for the FM title, but this didn’t exist in 1976. Here are the round-by-round results.
