Summary

The last two gold medals had been won by Britain’s Malcolm Cooper but he was no longer competing and the competition was considered wide open. Juha Hirvi (FIN) led the preliminary round with 1,172 over Ryohei Koba of Japan at 1,171. But Hirvi’s first shot in the final only found the 5-ring and he was never a factor for the gold medal. The final was extremely close with the lead changing hands eight times. On the final shot, Armenia’s Hrachya Petikyan shot 10.1 to win the gold medal over American Robert Foth.
