Boxing

Nine boxers represented Canada at the 1924 Games. It was the nation's second appearance in the sport. Facing tougher competition, Canada's team was unable to achieve results comparable to the five medals earned in 1920. Lewis was the only Canadian boxer in 1924 to win a medal, taking the bronze in the welterweight.
