Swimming

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

  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.
