Olympic Record 5:52.8 WR / Great Britain GBR / 15 July 1912

With only three teams entered, all swimmers were assured medals. But the gold medal had been conceded to the Americans, led by Ethelda Bleibtrey. The U.S. victory margin of 29.2 seconds makes this one of the most lopsided victories in Olympic history.
