The 4x100 metres relay competition at the Stockholm 1912 Olympic Games was marked by both new Olympic records and team disqualifications.

During the qualifying heats, teams Canada, USA, Sweden and Germany broke or matched the Olympic record. Later in the semi-finals, Great Britain and Sweden were temporary record holders until Germany finally established what would be the new Olympic record for the Games: 42.3 seconds.

The final had Great Britain, Sweden and Germany going for gold. The British team (David Jacobs, Henry Macintosh, Victor d'Arcy and Willie Applegarth) won the Olympic gold medal by beating the Germans by just centimetres with the Swedish finishing third. However, as had happened to team USA during the semi-finals, the German team was disqualified for a fault in the baton transition. Sweden automatically became the silver medallists and no bronze medal was given.
