Summary

Sylvia Sperber (FRG) had won silver in the air rifle two days before this event began. But the favorite was Bulgarian Vesela Lecheva, who was the world record holder and had been 1986 World Champion in the air rifle. Lecheva had succumbed to nerves in the air rifle and finished only =17th. She also had problems here in the preliminary round, placing only sixth with 583, while Sperber led with 590. Sperber held on for the gold medal, while Lecheva shot 100.2 in the final, easily the best round, to move up to the silver medal.
