Summary

The gold medal was won by North Korean Li Ho-Jun, who won the first medal ever for North Korea at the Summer Olympics. At first, it appeared that American Vic Auer had won the gold with 598 but that was based on unofficial scoring. The official scores gave Li 599 for first place. In his press conference after the victory, he stated, “I thought I was shooting at my enemies. Our Prime Minister, Kim Il-Sung, told us prior to our departure to shoot as if we were fighting our enemies. And that’s exactly what I did.” Because of the furor this remark caused, Li appeared at another press conference at which he claimed he was misunderstood. Li also finished ninth in the small-bore three position event in 1972.
