Summary

This event was an offshoot of the individual all-around for apparatus and field sports, with the scores in the three track & field events (100 yards, long jump, shot put) used to determine placements. The event could really be considered a track & field multi-event, sort of an early triathlon, and it could be included within the track & field events. Scoring was on a 0-10 scale, but athletes could score more than the maximum in all three events.

Unlike the combined all-around and all-around for apparatus work, which were dominated by German-speaking gymnasts, the Americans were pre-eminent in the field sports, taking the top six places, and 18 of the top 20. The title went to Indianapolis’ Max Emmerich, who scored well over the maximum with 35.7 points.
