Summary

The 3-position small-bore event consisted of the scores from the prone small-bore event, with the competitors shooting an additional 40 rounds kneeling and standing. Kneeling was shot first, and Finland’s Vilhon Ylönen broke the world record for that discipline with 394 to take a decisive lead going into the final phase. But he faltered and finished second to Norway’s Erling Kongshaug. Kongshaug was consistent. He did not win any of the phases, but he equaled Ylönen with 1,164 points for the event and won the tie-breaker with more shots in the inner ring (53-49). The bronze medal was won by the winner of the English match, Boris Andreyev (URS). Kongshaug had won the 1950 World Championship with the same score of 1,164 and Andreyev had also finished second in that event.
