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.
