San Jose State Spartans

 The San José State Spartans is the name of the athletic teams representing San Jose State University. SJSU sports teams compete in the Mountain West Conference at the NCAA Division I level. The university has participated in athletics since it first fielded a baseball team in 1890.

San Jose State University sports teams have won NCAA national titles in track and field, golf, and boxing. As of 2012, SJSU has won 10 NCAA national Division 1 team championships and produced 50 NCAA national Division 1 individual champions. SJSU also has achieved an international reputation for its judo program, winning 45 National Collegiate Judo Association championships in 51 years.

SJSU alumni have won 19 Olympic medals dating back to the first gold medal won by Willie Steel in track and field in the 1948 Olympics. Alumni also have won medals in swimming, judo and boxing.

The track team coached by "Bud" Winter earned San Jose the nickname "Speed City," and produced Olympic medalists and social activists Lee Evans, John Carlos and Tommie Smith. Smith and Carlos are perhaps best remembered for giving the raised fist salute from the medalist's podium during the 1968 Summer Olympic Games in Mexico City.
