Summary

Shooters could choose either the kneeling or standing position, but presumably, everybody shot kneeling, which is a much more stable, and accurate, position. The gold medal went to Switzerland’s Louis Richardet, who also competed at the 1900 Olympics. He won four medals in 1906, with three golds, after winning two golds in 1900. He competed in both pistol and rifle events, but appears to have been better with the rifle.
