The nyac is renowned for its successes in the world of olympic and elite amateur sport.
From the time of its founding in 1868 to the present day, excellence in athletics has been synonymous with the New York Athletic Club. In wrestling, water polo, fencing, track and field and numerous other sports, the NYAC has set its sights at the highest level and consistently reached those goals. The proof is quantifiable - well over 200 Olympic medals, over 100 of those being gold.
On a year round basis, in local, national, regional and international competitions, the NYAC's elite athletes burnish the reputation of this celebrated club. In that, they remain true to the New York Athletic Club's founding tenets while ensuring its future as a sporting powerhouse.
