Cycling — Men
With four individual gold medals in 1904, cyclist Marcus Hurley (Columbia ’08) stole the show, tying a record for individual golds at one Games — a mark that stood until Eric Heiden’s domination of the 1980 speed skating events. The multi-talented Hurley, who also added a bronze in St. Louis, was not only one of the greatest American amateur racers of the time — winning four straight U.S. sprint championships (1901-04) and one world championship (1904) — but also a former Lion basketball captain (1908). The four-time All-America (1905-08) and College Basketball Hall of Famer also captained the 1905 Metropolitan champion New York AC basketball team before moving on to a career as a consulting engineer.
John Allis (Princeton ’65) competed in cycling in three straight Summer Games (1964-68-72), but failed to win a medal. He competed in the individual cycling road race in 1964 and 1972 and competed on the team road race in 1968 at the Mexico City Games.
Princeton’s Derek Bouchard-Hall ’92 is the most recent Ivy Olympian, riding Down Under in Sydney in 2000.
