New York Athletic Club
Founded in 1868, the New York Athletic Club boasts a unique history. The Club's founding premise was to bring structure to a sporting environment that was lacking in organization and uniformity of measurement. Quickly, the NYAC organized the first US championships in boxing, swimming, wrestling and track & field. Today, the New York City clubhouse stands in tribute to an unmatched athletic history and the NYAC's ongoing commitment to the pursuit of sporting excellence, while also providing unmatched social opportunities for its members. Among its members have been some of the most accomplished individuals in the worlds of sport, business and the arts. Notably, Club athletes have won 248 Olympic medals. In 2013, the NYAC became the exclusive home of the William V. Campbell Trophy.
