Notes
  • Jules Labéeu is credited as a member of the French team,[2] but his individual medal on the Parallel Bars is credited to Belgium.[1]
  • Stane Vidmar's bronze medal is a source of confusion among different sources. Some sources do not credit his medal at all, other source acknowledges the medal earned by Stane Vidmar as a medal for Serbia,[1][3] and one source in Slovenian[4] claims that Stane Vidmar competed representing club Sokol, a notable organization for Serbian and Slovenian athletes. The Sokol movement prepared its members for taking "actions intended to weaken and destroy the Austro-Hungarian tyranny",[5] leading to Vidmar, who was a Lieutenant, joining the Serbian rebel army in 1912.[6] His medal, however, was earned in 1911, prior to Vidmar joining the Serbian army, and is credited as a medal for the Austro-Hungary region of Bohemia.
