Harry Simon was a lieutenant in the 6th Ohio Infantry in 1908. The 1908 free rifle event was shot at three positions, almost unknown in the United States, where it was only shot prone or kneeling. Thus, the U.S. was not expected to fare well in the event, but Harry Simon put on a tremendous show to win the silver medal. He was the high man in the prone and kneeling phases of the competition, being pushed down to second only by his standing score.
