Summary

Running target events had been held at the Olympics since 1908, with the exception of two time periods – 1928-1948, and 1960-1972. This event ,originally conducted over 50 metres, had been held at 10 metres since 1992, but after the 2004 Olympics, in an effort to streamline the Olympic Program, it was dropped from the program. Germany’s Manfred Kurzer opened a huge lead after qualifying, with his world record 590 being six points ahead. In the final round, he actually shot the lowest score, 92.4, but he was so far ahead that he was never challenged. Russian Aleksandr Blinov was 12 points in back of Kurzer in the prelims, but shot the highest final round with 100.0 to move up to the silver medal position. The 2002 World Champion and 1992 Olympic gold medalist, Michael Jakosits (GER), placed fifth.
