Malokinis was the winner of what may be the most obscure Olympic event ever. His victory came in the 100 m freestyle swimming for sailors, which was only open to Greek sailors from navy ships harboured at Piraeus. The 16-year-old Malokinis, enlisted on the Hydra, won by defeating his two compatriots, but his winning time was over a full minute slower than [Hajós] in the normal 100 m freestyle.
