Summary

American Darrell Pace had won the 1975 World Championships and came to Montréal expecting to win. Pace had the highest score in each round and won gold quite easily, bettering his own world record of 2,570 for the Double FITA Round by a single point. Pace could not compete in 1980 but returned in 1984 to “defend” his Olympic championship. He was also World Champion in 1979.
