Overview

As at London in 1908, the 1912 Olympic shooting program had a large number of events - 18 at Stockholm as compared to 15 at London. And similarly, the events could basically be separated into five categories: 1) long-range rifle shooting, 2) small-bore rifle shooting, 3) pistol shooting, 4) clay bird trap shooting, and 5) running deer shooting. The pistol and rifle events were held at [Kaknäs], while the running deer and clay trap events were held at [Råsunda].

Sweden and the United States dominated the competitions. Both won seven gold medals, with Sweden winning 17 medals in all to the 14 won by the United States.

Summary

He won three gold medals in 1912, adding a team gold in military pistol event, where he also made the highest score. In the team dueling pistol event, Lane also had the highest individual score, although the United States finished only 4th. Lane competed again at Antwerp in 1920 and added two more gold medals in team events and a bronze in the individual free pistol. [Johan Hübner von Holst] (SWE) and [John Dietz] (USA) tied for 3rd place. In the shoot-off for the bronze medal, von Holst scored 284 to Dietz’s 282.

The men's 30 metre dueling pistol (originally called individual competition with revolver and pistol (duel shooting)) was a shooting sports pistol event held as part of the 1912 Summer Olympics shooting programme. It was later standardized by the ISSF to the men's 25 metre rapid fire pistol. It was the fourth appearance of the event, as it had not been featured at the 1908 Games.

Men's Free Pistol, 50 metres

Host City: Stockholm, Sweden
Venue(s): Kaknäs, Djurgården, Stockholm
Date Started: July 1, 1912
Date Finished: July 1, 1912
Format: 50 metres. 60 shots in 10 series of 6 shots each. Ties settled by countback on 10s, 9s, 8s, etc.

Competitors 54from 12 nations

Summary

[Al Lane] added the free pistol gold medal to the one he had earned in the dueling pistol event two days previously. In this event, his 25-point margin of victory was one of the most dominant performances in Olympic shooting history. [Charles Stewart] (GBR) and [Georg de Laval] (SWE) finished equal third with 470, but Stewart won the bronze medal because of having scored more “centres (tens)” than de Laval.

The 8th-place finisher, [Nikolay Panin] (Kolomenkin) was a well-known figure skater, who had won the special figures gold medal at the 1908 Olympics in London. His real name was Nikolay Kolomenkin, but he competed under the pseudonym of Nikolay Panin, presumably because sports were considered undignified by the elite of Russian society in that era.

The men's individual competition with revolver and pistol, distance 50 metres (later standardized by the IOC to the men's 50 metre pistol) was a shooting sports event held as part of the shooting at the 1912 Summer Olympics programme. It was the fourth appearance of the event, which was the only one to have been featured at every edition of the Games to that point. The competition was held on Monday, 1 July 1912.[1]

Fifty-four sport shooters from twelve nations competed. Pistol with hairspring trigger, allowed in the world championship, was banned.

Summary

With one shot to go, [Nils Romander], an 18-year-old Swedish schoolboy, was in the lead, having missed only one shot to that point. All he had to do was to hit the half-figure with his last shot and the gold medal was his. The Swedish crowd was excited and gathered around him, but he became nervous by all the fuss and excitement, and missed the last shot.

Hungary’s [Sándor Prokopp] was tied for 6th place after the first stage, but in the second stage he recorded one of the seven perfect scores of 50. His combined total of 97 won him the gold medal. Prokopp had competed at London in 1908, but only in the free rifle event, in which he finished 43rd.

[Carl Osburn] (USA, [Embret Skogen] (NOR) and [Nikolaos Levidis] (GRE) tied for second with 95 points. In the shoot-off for the medals, Osburn scored 99, the highest score of the event, winning easily over Skogen (91) and Levidis (70).

The men's 300 metre military rifle from three positions (originally called individual competition with army rifle) was a shooting sports event held as part of the Shooting at the 1912 Summer Olympics programme.

Host City: Stockholm, Sweden
Venue(s): Kaknäs, Djurgården, Stockholm
Date Started: July 5, 1912
Date Finished: July 5, 1912
Format: 25 metres. Four-man teams. 5 series of 25 shots. 250 possible per shooter, 1,000 possible per Team. Target appeared for three seconds, with intervals of five seconds between appearances. Places determined first by number of hits on target, and ties decided by 1) number of points made, 2) number of 10s, 3) number of 9s, etc.

Competitors 16from 4 nations

Summary

This team competition was closely fought between Sweden and Great Britain, but Sweden eventually won, led by Johan Hübner von Holst, and the twin Carlberg brothers, Eric and Vilhelm. The Swedish and American shooters used autoloading Winchester M1903 .22 calibre rifles, while the British used single-shot rifles. No Swedish shots missed the target, but one of their competitors failed to discharge his shot in time, and that had to count as a miss.

The men's 25 metre team small-bore rifle (originally called team competition with miniature-rifle) was a shooting sports event held as part of the shooting at the 1912 Summer Olympics programme. It was the first appearance of the event, though a mixed-distance team small-bore rifle event had been held in 1908. The competition was held on Friday, 5 July 1912.

Sixteen sport shooters from four nations competed.

Summary

In Olympic Shooting, Crossman described the results of this match as follows, “The Americans had not trained especially for the 50-meter prone team match, but they had some hopes of winning with their Stevens M414 single-shot, falling-block rifles. They soon found the sights inadequate. The rules specified the prone position for this match, with no artificial support. The officials ruled that the ground was obviously not artificial and that the shooters therefore could rest their rifles on the ground. Strangely, only the Swedish team seemed to know about this, and they took full advantage of the knowledge, resting both the left hand and forearm and the butt of the rifle on the firing line. The English raised quite a fuss about this, but lost and went on to win by shooting ability, 762 to the Swedes’ 748, with the United States four points behind, for a third out of the six teams.”

Summary

After taking the first nine places in the double-shot running deer event on 3 July, Sweden was heavily favored in the team running deer event and they won easily. They were led by the individual winners in the two running deer events, Åke Lundeberg and Alfred Swahn. But their leading scorer in the team event was Swahn’s father, Oscar Swahn, who was 64 years, 257 days old on 4 July 1912, making him the oldest gold medalist in Olympic history. Oscar Swahn returned to the Olympics in 1920, where he won a silver medal in the team running deer event. In 1920, he won his medal aged 72 years, 279 days, making him the oldest medalist in Olympic history. Oscar Swahn was on the Swedish shooting team which was to compete at the 1924 Paris Olympics, but he fell ill shortly before those Games and did not compete. He died on 1 May 1927, a few months shy of his 80th birthday.

The men's 100 meter team running deer, single shots was a shooting sports event held as part of the shooting at the 1912 Summer Olympics programme. It was the second appearance of the event, which had been introduced in 1908. The competition was held on Thursday, 4 July 1912.

Summary

The United States team had the highest score in all three stages, winning the gold medal quite easily over Great Britain. A seventh team was entered, Russia, but they did not compete. Because there were seven entries, only four teams were supposed to advance to the second stage. But Finland and Sweden were tied at 95 after the first stage and both were allowed to continue, eliminating only France after the first day. Both Finland and Sweden were eliminated after the second stage, leaving the final shooting to the United States, Great Britain, and Germany. The real contest was for the silver medal between Great Britain and Germany. After stage one, Germany was in second place, trailing the United States by only one bird, and after two stages, Britain led Germany by only one bird. Both teams scored 247 in the final stage to give Great Britain the silver medal.

The men's trap, team (originally called clay bird shooting, team competition) was a shooting sports event held as part of the shooting at the 1912 Summer Olympics programme.
