Biography

Greg Losey graduated from the US Military Academy at West Point in 1972, where he started on the football team until an injury forced him to abandon the sport. He joined the infantry and was assigned to Fort Lewis, Washington but had already begun to show prowess in the modern pentathlon, and was soon re-assigned to Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, Texas and the US modern pentathlon training center. Losey was US champion in 1978 and was on the US team that won the 1979 World Championship. He hung on for several years to make the 1984 Olympic team, winning a team silver medal in Los Angeles. After leaving the military Losey entered real estate. He continued to compete, running the 100th Boston Marathon and competing at the 2000 World Triathlon Championship, placing sixth in his age group. Losey died relatively young from cancer, after being diagnosed in the winter of 2001.
