Summary

Gary Anderson (USA) was better known as a small-bore shooter, holding the world record in three-positions coming into the Olympics. But he failed to make the US team in that event and instead was entered in the free rifle. His first-string kneeling was only 92, but he pulled together with strings of 97-97-98 for a kneeling score of 384. He then posted the highest scores standing and prone for a world record of 1,153 to win the gold medal. Anderson had stunned the shooting world at the 1962 World Championships when he won four individual titles and set three world records.
