Cycling (road) pictogram.svg Cycling[edit]

Ten cyclists represented Russia. It was the first appearance of the nation in cycling. Andrejs Aspits was the only cyclist to finish the time trial, the only race held, placing 60th. Because only Aspits finished the time trial, the team received no ranking in the four-man team competition.

Fencing pictogram.svg Fencing[edit]

Twenty-four fencers represented Russia. It was the second appearance of the nation in fencing, which had previously competed in 1900. Because both fencers in 1900 had been professionals, the 1912 team was the first Russian team to feature amateurs. None of the Russian fencers in 1912 advanced to the finals, though four sabrists reached the semifinals.
