Summary

The exact make-up of the winning team was controversial for many years, as it was often called a Cuban team, and one member, Albertson Van Zo Post, was often labelled a Cuban athlete. Van Zo Post actually had no Cuban background, but his two Cuban teammates, Ramón Fonst and [Manuel Díaz], had strong American connections. In 1904 Díaz was a student at Harvard College, while Fonst frequently competed in the United States, although he had grown up in France. This mixed team easily defeated the US team, 7-2, in the only match in this event.
