Athletics at the 1904 Summer Olympics – Men's triathlon

The men's triathlon was an unusual event conducted during the 1904 Summer Olympics. The International Olympic Committee lists it as part of the Athletics at the 1904 Summer Olympics programme, though other sources list it among the Gymnastics at the 1904 Summer Olympics events. Gymnasts rather than track and field athletes competed. However, the three events of the triathlon were decidedly athletic rather than gymnastic in nature, comprising the long jump, the shot put, and the 100 yard dash.

118 athletes from 3 nations competed.

The results from this event, as well as the gymnastics triathlon event, were used to determine scores for the gymnastics all-around event. Nevertheless, the International Olympic Committee lists the medals won in this event as being part of the sport of Athletics.

Gymnastics at the 1904 Summer Olympics

At the 1904 Summer Olympics of Saint Louis, Missouri, eleven gymnastics events were contested, all for men only.

The 1904 Games had a program of events spread out over several months, and the gymnastics competition was no different. The International Olympic Committee considers two sets of events as "Olympic":

International Turners' Championship held July 1–2, comprising the all-around, triathlon, and team events

Olympic Gymnastics Championships held October 29, comprising the seven individual apparatus events and the combined event.The individual all-around was a combination of the gymnastic triathlon competition and the athletics triathlon. The team competition was a combination of individual scores from the individual all-around.

The parallel bars, horizontal bar, vault, and pommel horse scores for each gymnast were summed to get the "combined" score.

The men's all-around was an artistic gymnastics event held as part of the Gymnastics at the 1904 Summer Olympics programme. It was the second time an all-around event was held at the Olympics. The competition was held on Friday, July 1, 1904 and on Saturday, July 2, 1904. One hundred and nineteen gymnasts from three nations competed.

The scores in the all-around were the sum of the results of the athletic triathlon and gymnastics triathlon events. They thus included competition in the 100 yard dash, long jump, shot put, horizontal bar, parallel bars, and horse (both vaulting horse and pommel horse).

The three apparatus used were the horizontal bar, the parallel bars, and the horse (itself actually split further between the "long horse" or vault and the "side horse" or pommel horse). Each gymnast performed two compulsory routines and one optional routine on each apparatus, with the compulsory routines split between the two versions of the horse and the optional horse routine being on the side horse. The maximum score in each routine was 5, for a total maximum of 45.
