It is not known why there were two coxed pairs events, one over 1-kilometer and one over 1-mile. Both were won by the same Italian crew from the Bucintoro Venezia club. The three crew members – Enrico Bruna, Emilio Fontanella, Giorgio Cesana – were also part of their club team that won the coxed fours in 1906.
Second went to a Belgian team representing the Société Nautique de Gand. The two brothers on this team, Max and Rémy Orban came to Athens with no coxswain, apparently not realizing they needed one. They recruited a young Greek man named [Theofilakas Psiliakos], who served as the cox for them in both events. The Orbans and Psiliakos finished fifth over 1 km.
