Summary

Italy’s Andrea Benelli had been the world record holder since 1996. Considered a favorite at the 1996 and 2000 Olympics, he had managed only a single medal, bronze in 1996. The preliminary leader was Finland’s Marko Kemppainen, who was perfect with 125, and led Benelli by one bird. But Benelli shot a 25 possible in the final round to tie Kemppainen and force a shoot-off. In the shoot-off, both missed a target in the second round, but Kemppainen missed another in the third round, giving the gold to Benelli. The 2002 World Champion was Norway’s Harald Jensen. He made the final, surviving two rounds of shoot-offs to get in, but placed sixth with 145 targets.
