The event was weakened by the Soviet-boycott, as the world record was held by two Soviets – Viktor Vlasov (set in winning the 1980 gold medal) and Vladimir Lvov. The gold medalist, Malcolm Cooper (GBR), equaled the world record with 1,173. Cooper had learned to shoot small-bore in New Zealand when his father was stationed there with the Royal Navy. He would dominate this event in the 1980s, winning the 1986 World Championships and defending his gold medal at the 1988 Olympics.
