Tug of war was an Olympic event, part of the Athletics program during the Olympic Games from Paris 1900 until Antwerp 1920. Team sizes varied from five to eight members in different editions of the Games.

At the Stockholm 1912 Olympic Games, only two teams took part of the competition, Sweden and Great Britain. Several of the British athletes who competed in the tug of war event in the 1912 Summer Olympics, were medalists from the London 1908 Games. They would medal once again in Stockholm, taking -- however -- the silver medal; while the Swedish hosts won the Olympic Gold medal.
