Biography

Samuel Duvall, from Liberty, Indiana, was a member of the Cincinnati Archers in 1904. By shooting on the winning team at the 1904 Olympics he set a still-standing record as the oldest American to ever participate, or win a medal, in the Olympic Games. Duvall never won a national championship but was Ohio champion in 1889 (Double York Round) and 1890 (Double American Round). He made his living as a farmer and livestock buyer.
