Summary

Despite a relatively poor score in the standing shooting, placing only 13th in that section, France’s Paul Colas won the gold medal in the free rifle event because he had the highest score in both the kneeling and prone positions. Both Colas and the runner-up, Lars Jørgen Madsen (DEN), had competed in this event at London in 1908, with Madsen finishing 14th and Colas 25th. Colas competed in five shooting events in Stockholm, and also won the gold medal in the 600 metre military rifle event. He also competed in Olympic shooting in 1920 and 1924. In addition to his individual gold medals at Stockholm, he won team shooting medals in 1908 (bronze in small-bore rifle team) and 1924 (silver in free rifle team).
