Summary

The first round was led by the United States’ Bill McMillan, but he faltered on the second day. Defending champion Károly Takács (HUN) did not post the best score on either day, but was the most consistent and defended his Olympic title, winning by one over his teammate Szilárd Kun and Romania’s Gheorghe Lichiardopol. Kun and Lichiardopol had a 15-round shoot-off for the medals, and again tied with 142. In a second shoot-off, Kun prevailed 140-137 to win the silver medal.
