Summary

This event resulted in a three-way tie for first place. In the shoot-off, Finland’s Nestori Toivonen took three of the five shots and then withdrew, as he was well behind. Sweden’s Alfred Swahn and Åke Lundeberg both took the full five shots. Swahn led by one point after four shots, 15-14, but scored a perfect five on the final shot to win the gold medal. Swedish shooters dominated this event, taking five of the first six and six of the first eight places.

Alfred Swahn won nine Olympic shooting medals between 1908 and 1924, three of each color. His father, Oscar Swahn, was the defending champion from London, but finished tied for fourth in this event at Stockholm.
