Summary

Al Lane added the free pistol gold medal to the one he had earned in the dueling pistol event two days previously. In this event, his 25-point margin of victory was one of the most dominant performances in Olympic shooting history. Charles Stewart (GBR) and Georg de Laval (SWE) finished equal third with 470, but Stewart won the bronze medal because of having scored more “centres (tens)” than de Laval.

The 8th-place finisher, Nikolay Panin (Kolomenkin) was a well-known figure skater, who had won the special figures gold medal at the 1908 Olympics in London. His real name was Nikolay Kolomenkin, but he competed under the pseudonym of Nikolay Panin, presumably because sports were considered undignified by the elite of Russian society in that era.
