List of 1908 Summer Olympics medal winners

The 1908 Summer Olympics, officially the Games of the IV Olympiad, were an international multi-sport event which was held in 1908 in London. These games were originally scheduled to be held in Rome. At the time they were the fifth modern Olympic games. However, the Athens Games of 1906 have since been downgraded by the International Olympic Committee and the 1908 Games are seen as the start of the Fourth Olympiad, in keeping with the now-accepted four-year cycle. Overall, 106 events in 24 disciplines were contested.[1]

Jay Gould II won the gold medal in the Jeu de paume event, the only time this event would feature as a non-exhibition event at an Olympic games.

NotesEdit

  1. ^ Metaxas is generally credited with a bronze medal; no tie-breaker was held. The 1908 official report at p. 280 lists Metaxas as having tied with Maunder and assigns bronze medals to each. However, Metaxas does not appear in the IOC medal database, which lists only Maunder as sole bronze medalist. Some sources follow this database.
