* Because of the unexpected large number of entries, the decathlon was held over 3 days. The first day they held the 100m run, long jump, and shot put. The second day consisted of the high jump, 400m run, discus, and 110m hurdles. The third and final day consisted of the pole vault, javelin, and 1500m run.

** In 1913, after it had been discovered that James Thorpe had played professional baseball for a minor league team, Thorpe was disqualified for not being an amateur. Hugo Wieslander was therefore declared the winner of the 1912 Olympics, he was awarded the Gold medal but refused to accept it. In 1982 James Thorpe was reinstated by the IOC with Hugo Wieslander as joint winners of the 1912 Olympic decathlon.
