The event was considered wide open as nobody had dominated the sport since 2000. In the first phase, Dmtriy Melyakh (BLR) took the lead by scoring an Olympic record 186 with the air pistol. The fencing was won by Russian Andrey Moiseyev with 22 wins and 9 losses. He moved into second place overall, trailing his teammate, Rustam Sabirkhuzin. Moiseyev was a former swimmer and opened up a 108-point lead after the 200 freestyle swim, which he won. Although he placed only 19th in the riding, he still had a 44-point lead going into the cross-country run. Moiseyev was only a fair runner, but he held on for the gold medal. Moving up from fifth to the silver medal was the 2008 World Champion, Lithuania’s Andrejus Zadneprovskis, who won the run, but was too far back to catch Moiseyev.
