Gold: USA Lida Howell
Silver: USA Emma Cooke
Bronze: USA Eliza Pollock


[Lida Howell] won this event by more than 200 points, scoring 620 to the 419 score of the silver and bronze medalists, [Emma Cooke] and [Eliza Pollock]. Howell was the dominant American archer of this era, winning 17 US Championships between 1883 and 1907, and she only competed 20 times. She also won the title in 1904 in the Double Columbia Round. Cooke and Pollock also finished 2-3, respectively, in the Double Columbia Round, and oddly, both had the same overall score in that event. This was the only time this event was contested at the Olympics.
