Water polo[edit]

Great Britain made its third appearance in Olympic water polo in 1912. The British squad had won the gold medal in both of its prior appearances, in 1908 and 1900. They remained true to form, winning all three matches in 1912 to take their third gold medal. The toughest match of the tournament for the British side was the first one, against a Belgium team that Great Britain needed extra time to defeat. The luck of the draw was that the matches got easier from there, with the British team beating Sweden 6–3 in the semifinals and Austria 8–0 in the final.

Twenty-six cyclists represented Great Britain; 24 of the 26 finished the race. It was the third appearance of the nation in cycling. Frederick Grubb had the best time in the time trial, the only race held, winning the silver medal. For the team competition, Great Britain was allowed to have each Home Nation compete separately and entered teams representing England, Scotland, and Ireland. Grubb, along with the next three fastest English cyclists, had a combined time that won another silver medal. The Scottish cyclists placed fourth, with the Irish finishing 11th.

Rowing pictogram.svg Rowing[edit]

Twenty four rowers represented Great Britain. It was the nation's third appearance in rowing. Britain was nearly as dominant in the sport as they had been four years earlier, winning two of the three events British rowers entered and placing all four boats in the finals. The only British loss, other than in the Britain-only eights final, came in the coxed fours as the British boat took silver after coming in second to a German boat in the final. In all, Great Britain took two gold medals and two silvers; the best possible finish would have been three golds and one silver.

Tennis[edit]

Eleven tennis players, including three women, represented Great Britain at the 1912 Games. It was the nation's fourth appearance in tennis, having missed only 1904.

The British men started strong, advancing four of the eight individuals to the indoor singles quarterfinals and three of the four pairs to the same level (with none facing each other, no less). Dixon's semifinal win was the only one garnered by the men, however, and the team gathered only his silver medal and a bronze by Dixon and Beamish in the doubles. The women fared better, with Hannam and Parton meeting in the semifinals before taking the gold and silver medals, respectively, in the indoor singles. Great Britain's best results, however, came in the mixed pairs—the only losses by British mixed pairs were to other British sides. The layout of the draw resulted in gold and silver medals and a fifth place finish for the three pairs.

Tug of war[edit]

Britain competed in Olympic tug of war for the second time. The reigning champions, the City of London Police, were one of only two teams to compete. The eight-man team included three members of the 1908 squad. They challenged the host Stockholm Police in a best-of-three match. The Londoners were pulled across the line in the first pull, then gave a mighty struggle in the second. This second pull resulted in neither team being able to pull the other across, but the British team succumbed to exhaustion first as some of its members sank to the ground to give Sweden the victory.
