Men's Sailors 100 meter Freestyle

The 100 meter freestyle event for sailors at the 1896 Athens Olympics, as the name implies, was only open to sailors of the Greek Royal Navy. Only three competitors took place in the event, and the winner was from Greece (of course!).

The winning time was nearly a minute slower than the winner of the open 100 meter freestyle.

It is an interesting concept for the host team to include this event so as to increase their medal count.
