With the top five finishers in the individual event, the United States would be expected to dominate the team trapshooting. In fact, of the top five, one of them, Fred Plum, did not even count for the U.S. team. Of the seven stages in this event, the United States tied for the best score in one stage (the third with Belgium and Sweden), and won the other six stages. Well behind the Americans, Belgium won the silver medal and Sweden the bronze.
