The favorites were the 2002 World Champion, Mikhail Nestruyev (RUS), and China’s Wang Yifu, Olympic gold medalist in 1992 and silver medalist in both 1996 and 2000. Nestruyev led the qualifying by one point over Wang. They were so dominant that third place was another six points back. The final was a back-and-forth affair with Wang eventually winning, 690.0 to 689.8. The difference turned out to be the ninth and 10th shots. Nestruyev led after eight shots in the final, but made only 9.3 on the ninth, while Yang’s 10.3 brought him into a tie. On the final round, Wang outshot Nestruyev 9.9 to 9.7 to win gold. This gave Wang his fourth consecutive medal in the event, two golds and two silvers.
