There were four favorites and they would end up finishing 1st thru 4th. Sergey Pyzhyanov (RUS) was the world record holder, while the last two gold medalists were Wang Yifu (CHN) and Tanyu Kiriakov (BUL), but the best shooter in the last year had been Italy’s Roberto Di Donna. Wang led the qualifying by two points with 587. In the final round, the competition was halted when a tree fell onto a power line and disrupted the electronic scoring system. After nine shots of the final, Wang seemed ready to defend his gold medal, leading by 3.8 points. But he had not been well and almost passed out while readying for his final shot. He scored only 6.5 and when Di Donna hit dead center for 10.5 the gold medal was his. After the event, Wang fainted and was carried away on a stretcher.
