↑This is the roster of the German team as given by the International Olympic Committee database. Mallon notes that Petersdorff did not actually compete. He also claims that contemporary sources support a 4-person roster including Hoppenberg, Hainle, Gustav Lexau, and Ernest Luhrsen; Frey and Schöne are not included in either Mallon or de Wael's list of competitors in the event.
↑Houben did not actually compete; however, he is listed in the IOC's medal database as part of the Neptune team.
