After finishing second in both sprints for Lafayette College at the 1922 IC4A, Al Leconey won both titles the following year and confirmed his ability at the longer sprint by also taking the AAU 220 y in 1923. On leaving college, Leconey represented the Meadowbrook Club of Philadelphia; at the 1924 Olympic Trials he placed fourth on both the 100 m and the 200 m and went to Paris as the anchor man on the relay team that took the gold medal in 41.0 to equal the world record they had set in the preliminaries. Leconey began his career using his civil engineering degree but eventually became an insurance underwriter. He posed for the 1932 3-cent postage stamp, which was issued to help finance the Los Angeles Olympics, and was immortalized as the sprinter on that stamp.
Personal Best: 100 – 10.6 (1924).
