Summary

Jia Zhanbo (CHN) led the qualifying round with 1,171 over American Matt Emmons. Two days earlier, Emmons had won the gold medal in the small-bore prone event. In the final of this event he also appeared set to win a historic small-bore double, leading going in to the final shot of the final round. But then he cross-fired, hitting the wrong target, and scored 0 for his final shot, dropping to eighth place. After his stumble Czech rifle shooter Kateřina Kůrková came over to console Emmons. They eventually fell in love and married in Pilsen, Czech Republic in June 2007. The silver medalist in this event was Michael Anti (USA). He barely made the final with 1,165, but shot the highest final round with 98.1. Anti might have won gold but in the qualifying round he was penalized two points for taking an extra shot from the kneeling position.
