Aquatics[edit]

Diving[edit]

Two divers, both men, represented the United States. It was the nation's third appearance in diving, appearing in each edition of the diving competition. Both men competed in all three events. Gaidzik, the defending bronze medalist in the springboard, advanced to the final in that event and placed eighth. Neither diver advanced to the final in either of the other two events.

Rankings given are within the diver's heat.

Swimming[edit]

Seven swimmers competed for the United States at the 1912 Games. It was the nation's fifth appearance in swimming, a sport in which the United States had competed at each Olympic Games.

The American men finished with two gold medals and the corresponding Olympic records, as well as a bronze medal, in individual events. The relay team added a silver medal, and briefly held the world record after winning its semifinal heat (the Australasian team would finish with the record and the gold medal).

Ranks given for each swimmer are within the heat.

Athletics[edit]

109 athletes represented the United States. It was the fifth appearance of the nation in athletics, in which it had competed at every Olympics. The Americans won gold medals in 16 of the 30 events and finished with 42 of the 94 total medals awarded. They swept the medals in 4 events, as well as taking the top three spots in the pole vault (one gold, two silver, and three bronze medals were awarded in the event due to ties--Americans took the gold, both silvers, and one of the bronzes).

The United States had one competitor in the first Olympic pentathlon competition. George S. Patton, who would become a famous general during World War II, excelled in the military-influenced set of events. Patton finished in fifth place; he was the only non-Swede among the top seven finishers.

(The scoring system was point-for-place in each of the five events, with the smallest point total winning.)
