Pentti Linnosvuo (FIN) had won the free pistol event in 1956. The top seven finishers broke the Olympic record and three shooters tied it, with Linnosvuo becoming only the second shooter to win both the free pistol and rapid-fire pistol event, after Alfred Lane (USA), who had won both in 1912. Two shooters in this event defected after the Olympics. Hungarian Gábor Balla sought refuge at the West German Embassy, while Ma Chin-Shan of Taiwan (Chinese Taipei) asked to return to his native mainland China, to be reunited with his parents.
