The Official Report noted that "wretched weather conditions prevailed" for this event, describing heavy rain, high winds, and poor light. The shooting area had been constructed so that July sunlight would not be in the eyes of the shooters. But in the poor light, it was difficult to see the dark shooting clays, so they were marked with white, giving them a "magpie appearance."
The competition began on Wednesday, 8 July with the first stage. A 3-way tie for first place resulted after that stage between Charles Palmer, Richard Hutton, and John Postans. The next day, the Canadians lodged an objection against the previous days' scores and were allowed to shoot again. Postans subsequently withdrew, and did not shoot the 2nd or 3rd stages. The reason is not given in the shooting magazines, but it was presumably in anger over the Canadians being allowed to re-shoot. Canada's Walter Ewing scored 27 in the re-shoot of the second day to take a lead he never relinquished. He had the top score in all three stages. Ewing used an American Lefever gun with Winchester factory-loaded Leader shells. For his victory, in addition to a gold medal, he was awarded Lord Westbury's Cup, which was presented specially for the winner of the individual clay trap shooting.
