StatusOlympic
LocationStrelbishche Dynamo, Mytishchi
Participants46 from 25 countries
Format200 targets.

Skeet shooting had become too easy with so many perfect scores that the rules were changed to speed up the competition and make it more difficult. Five shooters tied for first with 196, with the three medalists tying with a 25 possible in the shoot-off. Dane Hans Kjeld Rasmussen shot another possible 25 in the second shoot-off to win the gold medal over Sweden’s Lars-Göran Carlsson (silver) and Cuba’s Roberto Castrillo. Castrillo’s bronze medal was the first ever won in Olympic shooting by Cuba, greatly aided by the US-led boycott.
