Summary

Sheikh Ahmed bin Hashr Al-Maktoum of the United Arab Emirates won the gold medal in this event with perhaps the most dominating performance ever in Olympic shooting. He led the qualifying by six points with 144, firing 48 on each string. In the final he made 45 of 50 to win gold by 10 points. This was the first ever medal won at the Olympics for an athlete from the United Arab Emirates. Al-Maktoum had started shooting late, beginning his sporting career as a top squash player. The silver medal went to Rajvavardhan “Chilly” Rathore (IND) who was only fifth after the preliminary round, but had the second highest final round with 44 to move up to second. The 2002 World Champion, Italy’s Danielle Di Spigno, lost in a shoot-off to advance to the final round.
