Summary

Various permutations of a running target event had been held at the 1908, 1912, 1920, 1924, 1952, and 1956 Olympics, but it had been off the program for the last three Olympic Games. Often contested as a running deer target, in 1972 it was contested as a running boar event shot over 50 metres. The gold medal in 1972 went to Yakov Zheleznyak (URS) who had been European Champion in running deer singles and doubles in 1965, and broke the world record for the event with 569. The silver medal went to Colombia’s Helmut Bellingrodt, the first Olympic medal won by a Colombian athlete. Bellingrodt would win the World Championship in 1974, and in 1978 he and his two brothers, Horst and Hanspeter (Bellingrodt), won the team event for Colombia at the Worlds.
