Swimming at the 1904 Summer Olympics – Men's 220 yard freestyle

The men's 220 yard freestyle was a swimming event held as part of the Swimming at the 1904 Summer Olympics programme.[1] It was the second time the event was held at the Olympics, though the only time yards were used instead of metres. The length, approximately 201 metres, was slightly longer than the 200 metres that had been held at the 1900 Summer Olympics and that would return at the 1968 Summer Olympics.
