McGill's Olympians

Over the past century, McGill has produced a long list of former students who have gone on to Olympic glory. Topping the list is Philip A. Edwards. A graduate of the Faculty of Medicine, Edwards won a whopping five bronze medals while representing Canada at the 1928 Amsterdam Games, the 1932 Los Angeles Games and the 1936 Berlin Games. His five-medal win still stands as the Canadian record. Curious about other McGill Olympians?
