One of France’s top swimmers of the 1920s, Jean Rebeyrol became the national long-distance champion in 1921 and retained his title through 1927. He was also the French champion in the 800 and 1500 m freestyle events from 1923 through 1926. He set a national record in the former discipline in August 1923, which lasted just under a year, and also held national records in the latter and the 400 m in open water. His most significant international appearance came at the 1924 Summer Olympics, where he was eliminated in the opening round of the 1,500 m freestyle after finishing last in a heat won by [Åke Borg] of Sweden. He competed for the Bordeaux Athlétic Club until 1923, at which point he joined ASPTT Bordeaux until his 1927 retirement. Following his competitive career, he worked as a swimming coach until his death in August 1975.
