Summary

The favorite was Michael Diamond (AUS), who was the 1996 and 2000 gold medalist, had been runner-up at the 2002 World Championships, and gold medalist at the 1998 and 2002 Commonwealth Games. He almost did not make the Australian team after he was arresting for assaulting his girlfriend. Because of the pending trial, his firearms license was suspended and he could not train for several months. The charges were eventually dropped and he was added to the team at the last minute. But he would not make the final in Athina, firing only 119 in the prelims. The qualifying leader was Russian Aleksey Alipov with 124. He went clear in the final with 25 to win the gold medal. The 2002 World Champion, Kuwaiti Khaled Al-Mudhaf made the final but hit only 20 of 25 clays and placed sixth. Silver medalist Giovanni Pellielo (ITA) had been third at the 2002 Worlds.
