Overview by IAAF 1912_olympic_stadium2.jpg 
After George Patching (RSA) had been fastest in the heats (22.3), the real racing began, with only the winners of the second round qualifying for the final. Craig, Applegarth, and Young won the first three heats in 21.9. Lippincott then ran 21.8, an Olympic best for 200m on a full curve. Applegarth – despite the inside draw – led into the straight in the final from Lippincott, with Craig and Reidpath equal fifth, 2m behind. The Briton was soon caught by Craig, who gradually drew away from the field. Lippincott closed well to take second, less than a metre behind Craig. Applegarth was a clear third.
Summary by Sports-reference.com
As in the 100 meters, there was no clear favorite. Again, four different Americans had won the AAU championship since the 1908 Olympics - none of them were at Stockholm. The pre-Olympic favorite was likely Britain’s William Applegarth, who had won the AAA earlier in 1912. But the world record for 220 yards on a straight had been set at 21 1/5 by Ralph Craig at the 1910 IC4A Championships, and he won the eastern U.S. Olympic trials. After winning the 100 metres three days earlier at Stockholm, Craig was favored.
The six semi-finals advanced the winner of each heat to the final, with Applegarth and Germany’s Richard Rau joining four Americans, including Craig, to compete for the gold medal. In the final, Applegarth led coming off the turn but was soon passed by Craig and Donald Lippincott. The finish was close but Craig held off a fast-finishing Lippincott to win the sprint double. Lippincott added the 200 silver medal to the bronze medal he had won in the 100.
 
 
Results
Ralph Craig's 21.7 second performance was 110 of a second off the Olympic record of 21.6 seconds, set in 1904.
