Summary

Afanasijs Kuzmins had won the 1986 World Championships with the center-fire pistol. But the favorite was likely the GDR’s Ralf Schumann, the current world record holder who had been very consistent in international competition. In Seoul, Kuzmins opened with a 300 possible in the first phase, and led after the qualifying with 598. He again went clean in the final round, with 100, to win by two shots. Kuzmins had first competed at the Olympics in 1976, placing fourth in rapid-fire and has continued to compete thru the 2008 Olympic Games. Schumann held on for the silver medal. Hungary’s Zoltán Kovács was only sixth after qualifying, but shot 99 in the final round to move up to the bronze medal. Schumann would become the greatest ever rapid-fire shooter, winning a gold medal in this event in 1992, 1996, and 2004, and multiple other international events.
