Alvin Loftes

(1890-1971) ~ Inducted 1968

Alvin Loftes (born Alvin Hjalmar Lofstedt), 1890-1971, won a bronze medal in cycling in the 1912 Stockholm Olympics in the four-man team time trial. The 320-kilometer race, the first and the longest team time trial in Olympic history, was won by Sweden due, in part, to its home course advantage. Loftes also finished eleventh in the individual road race. Upon his return from the Games, he moved from Providence to Point Judith, where he became a self-employed commercial fisherman until his retirement in 1955.
