THE WORLD'S LONGEST
OLYMPIC SWIMMING EVENT

THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What was the world's longest Olympic swimming event?

Way back in 1900, at the Games of the II Olympiad in Paris, France, there were a few unusual swimming events held which were never held again.

One was an obstacle course, another was an underwater endurance swim and the last was the 4,000 meter freestyle, the longest swimming event ever held at the Olympics.

The winner of the 4,000 meter freestyle was John Arthur Jarvis of Great Britain with a time of 1:01:48.4, beating 2nd place finisher, Zoltán Halmay of Hungary, by over 10 minutes.
