Australia’s Michael Diamond won the gold medal easily, becoming only the second trap shooter to defend an Olympic title, after Italy’s Luciano Giovannetti in 1980-84. Diamond won by five birds, the largest margin since the 1956 Olympic trap event. Diamond dedicated the gold medal to his father, who had died only four months before the Sydney Olympics. Diamond would also win a World Championship in trap, but not until 2007.
