Bud Fisher (USA) had won the UIT free rifle championship only the week before. Choice of ammunition was important in this event. The American variation had smaller stray than much of the European ammo; seven of the top ten finishers used American ammunition. Fisher won the event by shooting 95 from 100 possible. He and Carl Osburn (USA) tied for first but Fisher won the shoot-off, 48-45. Fisher had also won three shooting gold medals in 1920. In his Olympic career, he competed in five shooting events, and won five gold medals. Osburn had competed in both the 1912 and 1920 Olympics, winning four medals in 1912, six in 1920, and this silver medal brought his career total of Olympic medals to 11.
