Summary

The defending champion was Hungarian Hungary’s László Hammerl, who had won on a tie-breaker in 1964. This time he equaled the world record with 598, only to be tied by Jan Kůrka of Czechoslovakia. But in México it was Kůrka who benefitted from the tie-breaker rule of highest score on the last string to win the gold medal. Two women competed in this event, Eulalia Rolińska (POL) in 22nd, and Gladys de Seminario (PER) in 31st, the first two women to compete in an Olympic shooting event.
