Shortly after the Czech team arrived in London, 22 year old team member Eliska Misáková was taken ill and confined to an iron lung. She died of infantile paralysis on the same day that her teammates competed.[3] When the Czech flag was raised at the medal ceremony, it was bordered with a black ribbon.[3]

Notes

^[A] Other sources[4][5] claim that Luigi Zanetti (Italy) also won a silver medal and Guido Figone (Italy) also won a bronze medal in the pommel horse event, despite the three gold medals awarded for the three-way first place tie.
