The defending champion was American Matt Emmons but he was expected to be challenged by Belarusian Sergey Martynov, the 2006 World Champion, and bronze medalist in 2000 and 2004. In the qualifying the leader was Ukrainian Artur Aivazian with 599, leading Emmons by two points. Emmons outshot Aivazian in the final, 104.7 to 103.7, but could not close the gap, Aivazian winning gold and Emmons silver. Emmons wife, Kateřina Kůrková-Emmons, won two medals in Beijing, gold in air rifle and silver in small-bore. They had met at the 2004 Olympics and married in 2007.
