Military Rifle, Three Positions, 300 metres, Men

Date 1 July 1912 — 09:00-14:00
StatusOlympic
LocationKaknäs, Djurgården, Stockholm
Participants91 from 12 countries
FormatFired in two stages. First stage: four shots kneeling, four shots prone, and two shots standing in a time limit of three minutes. Second stage: five shots prone and five shots kneeling in a time limit of three minutes. Possible 50 for each stage, 100 overall. Ties decided by the greatest number of hits on the half-figure.

With one shot to go, Nils Romander, an 18-year-old Swedish schoolboy, was in the lead, having missed only one shot to that point. All he had to do was to hit the half-figure with his last shot and the gold medal was his. The Swedish crowd was excited and gathered around him, but he became nervous by all the fuss and excitement, and missed the last shot.

Hungary’s Sándor Prokopp was tied for 6th place after the first stage, but in the second stage he recorded one of the seven perfect scores of 50. His combined total of 97 won him the gold medal. Prokopp had competed at London in 1908, but only in the free rifle event, in which he finished 43rd.

Carl Osburn (USA, Embret Skogen (NOR) and Nikolaos Levidis (GRE) tied for second with 95 points. In the shoot-off for the medals, Osburn scored 99, the highest score of the event, winning easily over Skogen (91) and Levidis (70).
