Boris Andreyev (URS) and Iosif Sîrbu (ROM) both equaled the world record in the English Match by shooting possibles of 400. Ties were broken by counting the number of hits in the center ring, and Sîrbu won that by 33-28. The perfect world record had been set at the 1939 World Championships in Luzern, Switzerland, by Finland’s Toivo Mänttäri.
