The excellent book Sailplanes 1920 - 1945 by Martin Simons includes an excellent write-up, photos and scale drawings of this glider. A quote from the book, "Led by Professor Walter Georgii and backed by ISTUS (International Studienkommission für Segelflug), there was a strong move during the nineteen thirties for soaring to be recognized as an Olympic sport." The Olympia Meise was the winner of the competition to select a sailplane type to be used in the Olympics, but the 1940 Olympic Games never took place due to WWII. However, it was a very popular design. "By good judgment and, perhaps, an element of luck, the Meise proved to have excellent handling qualities, so much so that Philip Wills, the English champion pilot, described the Meise as a piece of poetry, perfectly balanced in all senses and a delight to fly."
