Summary

Only two teams entered this event, which turned out to be very close. Sweden won the gold medal with a score of 86, only one point ahead of Great Britain. Sweden was led by [Oscar Swahn] and his son, [Alf]. This was the first Olympic appearance for Oscar Swahn, but he was already 60-years-old. He competed at the Olympics in 1912 and 1920, winning a silver medal in 1920 in the team running deer double shot, which makes him the oldest Olympic medalist ever at 72+-years-old.
