In the painting competition, the jury could not decide on a gold medal. The silver medal went to the Frenchwoman [Henriette Brossin de Mère-de Polanska] for L'Elan (The Jump), although the title of this work can not be definitively confirmed. The bronze medal was awarded to the Belgian [Alfred Ost] for the poster Joueur de Football (Soccer player), probably already designed in 1910. The original can now be visited in Sportimonium (Sports Museum of Flandern) in Haverlee.
