In the English Match, 85 shooters from 46 nations started, with the elimination round advancing 54 to the finals. As shooters had improved, the new international target was smaller than that used in 1952 and 1956 when the gold medalists had recorded possibles. The event was won by the youngest shooter in the competition, Peter Kohnke (GER), who scored 590 to defeat the United States’ Jim Hill by one point.
