At the 1900 Summer Olympics, a water polo tournament was contested.

Eight teams entered the water polo event, with one withdrawing before competition. The seven participating teams included four separate French teams, with two French teams from the Pupilles de Neptune de Lille swim club. The tournament was played in a single-elimination format with no playoff for third place and two bronze medals were awarded. This resulted in 4 of the 7 teams being awarded medals, one of whom only played and lost a single match.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Mallon lists 5 players in addition to these 7 found in the IOC database. Sports-Reference explains that the official roster is likely wrong and that five of the medalists didn't compete, and the team that actually competed consisted of Coe, Kemp, Robert Crawshaw, William Henry, John Jarvis, Frederick Stapleton, and Victor Lindberg.
  2. ^ Mallon lists 3 players in addition to these 7.
  3. ^ Burgess was British, leading some sources (e.g., Sports-Reference) to consider this team a mixed team, but the IOC considers the medal to have been won by a French team.
  4. ^ Listed in the IOC database as "Devenot", but almost certainly the same person who competed in swimming.
  5. ^ Mallon lists 4 players in addition to these 7.
  6. ^ Houben was Belgian, leading some sources (e.g., Sports-Reference) to consider this team a mixed team, but the IOC considers the medal to have been won by a French team.
  7. ^ a b c This player appears to have played for both PdNdL teams.
