The 4 x 250-metre freestyle relay was originally scheduled for 26 April [13 April]. Because of the weather that twice caused delays at the Bay of Neo Phaliron, it was postponed until 28 April [15 April]. The race ended in an easy victory for the Hungarians, led by their anchor swimmer, [Zoltán von Halmay]. They were almost 24 seconds ahead of the second place German team. Being held in an open bay, the details of this race are not known to us. It is not known if the swimmers went back and forth over a 250-metre course or if they swam 250 metres and then touched off to their teammates, all swimming a single 1,000 metre course.
