Summary

The event had 43 competitors from 11 nations, who faced a single jumping course, which was so difficult that no rider went clear. The gold went to Swiss rider Alphonse Gemuseus, riding [Lucette], with six faults, also finishing the course in the fifth fastest time of 2:24.4, although time was only used as a tie-breaker. Finishing second was the defending Olympic champion Tommaso Lequio di Assaba of Italy, who had 8¾ faults in a relatively slow time of 2:42.0. Both riders would return to the Olympics in 1928 but neither would win a medal. Lequio di Assaba also competed in the three-day event in 1924 and would do so again in 1928. He rode [Trebecco] in jumping at all three Olympics, one of the first two horses to appear at three Olympic Games, along with [Nigra], who also competed from 1920-28 for American riders. The bronze medal was won by Poland’s Adam Królikiewicz on [Picador] in his only Olympic appearance.
