Biography

Norman Rule found considerable success in his sport shooting career in the post-World War II era and won numerous tournaments from the late 1940s through the mid-1960s. He represented Australia at three editions of the Olympic Games, competing in the small-bore rifle, three positions, 50 metres event in 1956 and 1960, and the small-bore rifle, prone, 50 metres event in 1956, 1960, and 1964. He best placements came in the latter event, where he was 22nd in 1956 and 1964. Rule was still competing in the 1970s and eventually took up table tennis, which he played into the 2010s. His wife Gwen was also a competitive sport shooter.
