Medals: 1 Gold, 1 Bronze (2 Total)
On the same day that he won a gold medal for water polo at the 1900 Olympics, Peter Kemp of Manchester Osborne SC entered for the obstacle race held in the River Seine. In this highly unusual event, competitors had to climb over a pole then scramble over one row of boats before finally swimming under another. Some sources indicate that the competitors swam through barrels instead of over and under the boats, but whatever the hazards may have been, Kemp finished third and was the best placed of the British competitors. He also swam in the 200 metre freestyle at the Olympics, but was unplaced.
