Tennis — Men
The Ivy League has seen five men’s tennis players reach the Olympic level. Harvard’s Edgar Leonard and Beals Wright claimed gold in the first Ivy League tennis appearance in 1904. Wright took the gold medal in singles, while Leonard earned the bronze. The two also teamed up to take the gold medal in the men’s doubles competition.
Frank Hunter, a Cornell grad, competed in the singles competition in 1924 but did not place. He did, however, team with partner Vincent Richards to win gold in doubles. Hunter’s performance in Paris was the last appearance by any Ivy League tennis player for more than eight decades, when Harvard’s James Blake, then ranked among the top 10 in the world rankings, played in Beijing.
