Every Olympics since 1988

Canada’s greatest triumph at the Olympic Games came at Sydney 2000, when Daniel Nestor and Sebastien Lareau won the men’s doubles gold medal, defeating Australian legends and favourites Todd Woodbridge and Mark Woodforde in the final. This remains Canada’s only tennis medal at the Olympic Games, though Nestor came close again at Rio 2016 when he and Vasek Pospisil fell in the bronze-medal match.

Canada has competed in tennis at every Olympic Games since the sport was reinstated into the program in 1988. Tennis was actually an event at the first modern Games in Athens 1896 but was discontinued following Paris 1924. It was a demonstration sport at Mexico City 1968 and Los Angeles 1984 before being brought back fully at Seoul 1988.

Nestor has participated in six Olympic Games – Atlanta 1996, Sydney 2000, Athens 2004, Beijing 2008, London 2012, and Rio 2016. This is the second-most of any tennis player behind only India’s Leander Paes, who has contested seven Olympic Games.
