Overall, 144 participants from 16 countries with 300 exhibits participated in the sculpture competition. There were two groups of entries: Reliefs and Medals and Sculptors Works (free-standing figures). The jury for sculpture consisted of the people Haig Patigan (1876-1950), San Francisco; Lloyd La Page Rollins (1890-1970), San Francisco; Henry Hering (1874-1949), New York; and Salvatore Cartaino “SC” Scarpitta (1887-1948), Hollywood; all well-known sculptors and art historians in the United States. Also on the jury was the Swedish sculptor Carl Milles (1875-1955).

US sculptor Mahonri Mackintosh Young produced his amazing statue The Knockdown. A viewer can almost sense the blow the boxer lying on the ground has received. The work is now exhibited in the Art Museum of Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. Young also submitted 15 other works. Hungarian silver medalist Miltiades Manno was an Olympic rower in the coxed eights at the 1912 Stockholm Games. His statue Wrestling was only one of 27 exhibits he submitted. The bronze medal went to Czech artist Jakub Obrovský and his Odysseus, today placed in the garden of the Palais Sternberg in Praha.

Seven more artists received Honorable Mentions for their works. It is also not known how the works were evaluated. Some works are referred to as “hors concours” in the Official Report, and there is no further explanation for this category.
