Summary

The favorite coming in was Italy’s Niccolò Campriani and in the qualifying, he equaled the Olympic record with 599 points, tying for first with Romania’s [Alin George Moldoveanu]. In the final Moldoveanu opened with 10.3 and took the lead until the sixth shot when he dropped to second, behind Campriani, with a 9.9. But he fought back, moving ahead again with a 10.5 in his ninth round, and clinching the gold medal with 10.3 on his final shot fort 702.1, as Campriani won the silver medal with 701.5. This was the first gold medal in shooting for Romania since Sorin Babii won the free pistol in 1988. Indian shooter Gagan Narang placed third with 701.1 points. Narang was only fourth after seven shots but scored 10.3 and 10.7 on his final two shots for the bronze. Campriani would later win gold in the small-bore three-position event.
