Summary

This event required shooters to use a Gras model rifle that was first manufactured in France in 1873. Shooters could choose either the kneeling or standing position, but presumably, everybody shot kneeling, which is a much more stable, and accurate, position. France’s Léon Moreaux and Switzerland’s Louis Richardet tied with 187 points but Moreaux won the gold medal, most likely because he had 30 target hits to Richardet’s 29. Moreaux won five medals in 1906, including two golds. Richardet also competed at the 1900 Olympics. He won four medals in 1906, with three golds, after winning two golds in 1900.
