Summary

The 2008 and 2012 champion, 37-year-old [Vincent Hancock] from the USA was eliminated in the qualification round. The gold medal match was between two young shooters, 21-year-old [Gabriele Rossetti] from Italy, and the 26-year-old Swede [Marcus Svensson]. Rossetti, whose father [Bruno] won a bronze medal in this event in 1992, had a perfect final, with 32 hits out of 32, but the Swede pushed him to the very end, missing only his final shot. Two veterans battled it out for the bronze medal. [Abdullah Al-Rashidi], 53-year-old from Kuwait, but now representing IOA (Independent Olympic Athletes), and the 2000 Olympic champion, 48-year-old [Mykola Milchev] from Ukraine. Al-Rashidi had a full score in the bronze medal match and secured his first Olympic medal despite being a three-time world champion in this event in 1995, 1997 and 1998!
