Swimming[edit]

Hungary continued to win a medal with each entry in a swimming event, taking three medals in 1900 to add to the two won in 1896. Halmay's medals were silver and bronze, however, whereas Hajós had taken a pair of gold medals four year earlier.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ The masters foil used jury verdicts on art and skill in the bout rather than winning or losing to advance to the second round.
  2. ^ Lécuyer withdrew after the first round, to be replaced by Todoresku. It can therefore be inferred that Todoresku was the fifth-place fencer in the same preliminary pool as Lécuyer.
