Murray to Defend Gold Medal at Tokyo Olympics


Andy Murray will aim to extend his Olympic reign in Tokyo.

The two-time defending Olympic gold-medal champion has been named to Great Britain's Olympic team. Murray, the only player in history to successfully defend the Olympic singles gold medal, joins British No. 1 Dan Evans, Johanna Konta and Heather Watson as singles starters on Team GB.

The 34-year-old Murray will also play doubles alongside Joe Salisbury. Evans will partner Neal Skupski with Konta and Watson joining forces in women's doubles. Jamie Murray, Andy's older brother and former world No. 1 doubles player, is not on the squad.




At the 2012 London Olympic Games, Murray defeated Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer in succession to win his first gold medal in front of a wildly enthusiastic crowd at Wimbledon. Four years later, Murray made history fighting off Juan Martin del Potro in a gripping four-set final to successfully defend the gold medal.

The 2021 Tokyo Olympics are scheduled for July 23rd to August 8th.

Monica Puig is defending women's gold-medal champion.
