Four years later he was a member of Canadian boat, which won the bronze medal in the eights. Again four years later at the 1912 Summer Olympics, he was a coach of the Canadian eights crew.

He was elected to Toronto City Council in 1928, and served three terms before being defeated in the 1931 election.

His son Joseph Wright, Jr., who's coach he also was, won a silver medal in the double sculls competition at the 1928 Summer Olympics.
