Bohemia competed at the 1912 Summer Olympics in Stockholm, Sweden, for the last time. Beginning at the 1920 Olympic Games, Bohemian athletes would compete for the new nation of Czechoslovakia. Until 1918 Bohemia was part of Austria-Hungary.

Athletics pictogram.svg Athletics[edit]

11 athletes competed for Bohemia in 1912. It was the country's third appearance in athletics, having competed in the sport each time the nation appeared at the Olympics. František Janda-Suk, whose silver medal in the discus throw in 1900 was Bohemia's best result in Olympic history and the nation's only athletics medal, placed 15th in that event. That result was the best placing Bohemia got in 1912.

Ranks given are within that athlete's heat.

Cycling (road) pictogram.svg Cycling[edit]

5 cyclists represented Bohemia. It was the second appearance of the nation in cycling, in which Bohemia had previously competed in 1900. Bohumil Rameš had the best time in the time trial, the only race held, placing 63rd. Since only three of the five cyclists finished, Bohemia received no ranking in the team competition which required four valid times.

Fencing pictogram.svg Fencing[edit]

Thirteen fencers represented Bohemia. It was the second appearance of the nation in fencing, in which Bohemia had previous competed in 1908. Three of the fencers on the 1908 team returned. Vilém Goppold, who had won Bohemia's lone individual medal in 1908 with a bronze in the sabre, competed again, this time alongside two sons, Karel and Vilém, Jr. The sabre team, which had also won a bronze medal in 1908, was the only Bohemian fencing entry to reach the finals in 1912; the team lost all three of its round-robin matches in the final to finish in fourth place.

Tennis[edit]

Eight tennis players represented Bohemia at the 1912 Games. It was the nation's third appearance in tennis, in which Bohemia had competed each time the nation had appeared at the Olympics.

The Bohemian team was unable to capture any medals, though Žemla-Rázný twice advanced to the semifinals: once in the outdoor singles and once with Just in the outdoor doubles. Both times the Bohemian side lost the semifinal and the bronze medal match that followed to finish fourth.

Wrestling[edit]

Greco-Roman[edit]

Bohemia sent four wrestlers in 1912. It was the nation's second Olympic wrestling appearance, with the nation not having competed in the Olympics in 1896 or 1904 and wrestling not having been on the programme in 1900. The team, compiling an aggregate 7-8 record, had much better success than Bohemia's first wrestling team, which went 0-4. Balej had the best result of any Bohemian wrestler, advancing to the sixth round before suffering his second loss and consequent elimination.
