Participants45 from 29 countries

The favorite was Bulgarian Vesela Lecheva who was the defending World Champion and the world record holder. A media favorite because of her looks, she struggled in this event and would finish only tied for 17th. After the preliminary round three shooters were tied for first – Irina Shilova (URS), Zhang Qiuping (CHN), and Launi Meili (USA). But both Zhang and Meili shot poorly in the final and dropped out of the medals. Shilova fired 103.5 in the final round to win the gold medal, holding off Germany’s Sylvia Sperber, who had the highest final round with 104.5 and won the silver.
