Summary

There were 14 firing points at the rifle range, and with 26 in the event, the English Match was fired in two relays. During the first relay, Hungary’s Antal Barát-Lemberkovits shot one round at the wrong target. The shot scored a 10 on the wrong target. The error eventually cost Barát-Lemberkovits the gold medal, as he finished 9 points out of the gold medal. Bertil Rönnmark (SWE), a pharmacist, and Gustavo Huet (MEX), a student, tied for first with 294 and shot-off for the gold medal, with Rönnmark winning. Rönnmark used a Danish rifle and ammunition, while Huet used American equipment. After the shooting, Swedes Rönnmark and Andersson (5th) had given their left-over bullets to friends. When they both made a shoot-off, they had to track back their ammo, risking elimination without bullets.
