The gold medal winner in sculpture was Walter Winans of the United States, who won for his bronze statuette of “An American Trotter.” Winans also competed at Stockholm in shooting, appearing in six different events, and winning a silver medal in the running deer, team competition. Winans had also competed in shooting at London in 1908, where he had won a gold medal in the individual running deer (double shot) event.

Winans sculpture was given to the Swedish Olympic Committee, who added it to the Swedish Museum of Athletics that was planned for the Olympic Stadium. The non-medal winning work by Tait McKenzie, a bronze cast medallion, entitled “The Joy of Effort,” was also given to the Swedish Olympic Committee, and inserted in the outer wall of the Olympic Stadium.
