 Although one of the original sports of the modern Olympic Games, there is nothing old-fashioned about shooting. It has advanced from the days of paper targets and manual scoring to the electronic targets and computerised scoring systems used for the 2000 Olympic Games. The Cecil Park complex, set in native bush and grassland, is one of the finest shooting venues in the world. It boasted state-of-the-art technological support and excellent facilities for Competitors and spectators.
Shooting is such a precise sport that the slightest error, loss of concentration or equipment failure can prove to be disastrous. How shooters react to peripheral factors such as the wind, the light and spectators often decides who wins or loses. The performances of Australian shooters Michael Diamond, trap and Russell Mark, double trap clearly demonstrated this. Russell Mark relaxed too early and lost, after leading by three points, over the last ten targets. Michael Diamond, defending Olympic champion, performed perfectly under immense pressure from the sell-out audience and the whole nation, the presence of the Australian Prime Minister and his own high expectations. He harnessed all his reserves and blitzed the field in the men's trap competition, winning by five targets. 

Overview

Shooting competition in 2000 was held at the [Sydney International Shooting Centre], which was actually in Liverpool, New South Wales. The program was enlarged once again to 17 events, 10 for men and seven for women. The men's program was the same as in 2000, while women added two shotgun events, single trap and skeet shooting. The Olympic shooting program had undergone hyperinflation since 1980, when there were only seven events on the program, and 1984, when the sport was first segregated into men's and women's events, and there were 11 events on the program.

The shooting competitions at the 2000 Summer Olympics were carried out at the Sydney International Shooting Centre in Liverpool, New South Wales, Australia during the first week of the Games, from Saturday 16 September 2000 to Saturday 23 September 2000.

While the rifle, pistol and running target rules were largely unchanged from the Atlanta Games, two new shotgun events were added (women's trap and women's skeet), raising the number of individual Olympic shooting events to an all-time high of seventeen.

Men's Air Pistol, 10 metres

Summary

After the preliminary round [Wang Yifu] (CHN) and [Franck Dumoulin] (FRA) were tied with 590. Wang had been gold medalist in the event in 1992 and silver medalist in 1996, while Dumoulin was still recovering from a motorcycle accident in 1999 and was still in a wheelchair only one month before the Sydney Olympics. In the final round, Dumoulin won fairly easily, leading Wang by 2.0 points. They were well ahead of the bronze medalist, Igor Basinsky (BLR), who had won silver in the free pistol in 1996 and would repeat that placement three days later. The defending champion, [Roberto Di Donna] (ITA), made the final round, but placed sixth.

 The second final held on Day 1 was the men's 10 m air pistol. Pre-Games favourite Franck Dumoulin of France, and Wang Yifu from China, Barcelona gold medallist, traded Olympic records before Dumoulin beat Wang by two clear points with an Olympic record score of 688.9. Igor Basinsky of Belarus, who had scored a maximum 100 in the first round, lost poise in the final series and had to settle for the bronze.
The men's 10 metre air pistol competition at the 2000 Summer Olympics was held on 16 September, the day after the opening ceremony. Franck Dumoulin and Wang Yifu both reached 590 points in the qualification round of 60 shots, raising the Olympic record by three points. Although both shooters performed considerably worse in the final, their seven-point gap to the bronze medal was quite safe. Dumoulin outperformed Wang by two points, setting a new final Olympic record.

Summary

[Ralf Schumann] was the gold medalist in 1992 and 1996, World Champion in 1990 and 1998, and the world record holder. He was a huge favorite, but he barely qualified for the final, placing seventh in the preliminary round and eventually finishing fifth. Three shooters tied with 587 for first in the prelims '€“ [Sergei Alifirenko] (RUS), [Michel Ansermet] (SUI), and [Iulian Raicea] (ROM). But in the final, Alifirenko was the strongest, eventually defeating Ansermet by 1.5 points. It was the first major international victory for Alifirenko, whose hero was Schumann. Schumann was penalized two points for protesting an 8 score. After the protest was disallowed, the further penalty dropped him from medal contention.

Ralf Schumann of Germany, regarded by many as the one of the most successful shooters in history, came to Sydney wanting a medal, "regardless of which colour", but all believed he was to win his third consecutive gold in the 25 m rapid fire pistol event. However, the master was penalised two points in the first round and was unable to recover, eventually coming fifth. The Russian Federation's Serguei Alifirenko, so long the bridesmaid to Schumann, won the gold with 687.6. Switzerland's Michel Ansermet, silver and Romania's Lulian Raicea, bronze had shared the lead with Alifirenko on 587 at the end of the qualifying stage. 
 The men's 25 metre rapid fire pistol competition at the 2000 Summer Olympics was held on 20 and 21 September.

Men's Small-Bore Rifle, Three Positions, 50 metres

Summary

Slovenia'€™s [Rajmond Debevec] was one of the great shooters of the 1990s, having twice been named the international shooter of the year. He also held world records in both air rifle and small-bore three positions. In this event, he had been world record holder since 1991, but he had yet to win an Olympic medal. In the preliminary round he led with 1,177 and increased his lead in the finals, winning gold by 4.6 points over Finland'€™s [Juha Hirvi]. The bronze medalist, [Harald Stenvaag] (NOR), had been silver medalist in small-bore prone in 1992, while the fourth-place finisher, [Artem Khadzhibekov] (RUS) had been gold medalist in the 1996 air rifle.

 The final day of Olympic shooting traditionally sees the marathon of shooting events decided: the men's 50 m rifle three positions event. This physically and mentally exhausting event is notoriously difficult to predict and at Sydney 2000 none of the favoured shooters won medals. It took an Olympic record (1275.1) from Rajmond Debevec of Slovenia to win the gold from Finland's Juha Hirvi while Norway's Harald Stenvaag won the bronze. This win represented a remarkable effort by Debevec, who was competing in his fifth Olympic Games.
 Men's 50 metre rifle three positions was the last rifle event to be concluded at the 2000 Summer Olympics, on 23 September. The qualification round, consisting of 40 shots from each position, began at 09:00 Australian Eastern Standard Time (UTC+10), and the final round of 10 additional shots standing at 13:15. World record holder Rajmond Debevec won the competition and his first Olympic medal, setting two new Olympic records.
 e existing World and Olympic records were as follows.

Men's Small-Bore Rifle, Prone, 50 metres

Host City: Sydney, Australia

Summary

[Jonas Edman] of Sweden began shooting sport as a free rifle specialist and was part of the Swedish gold medal team at the 1998 World Championships. But he then switched to small-bore shooting and received entry to the 2000 Olympics as a wild card. In Sydney he led the preliminary round with 599, missing only a single 10 in the final string, and then held on to win the gold medal in the final round.

 In the men's 50 m rifle prone Jonas Edman of Sweden and Torben Grimmel of Denmark upset more favoured shooters to take gold and silver respectively. Edman led throughout the qualification round while Grimmel entered the final in equal third place, and neither was challenged. Four shooters were tied for the bronze with one shot remaining but Sergei Martynov of Belarus summoned all his World Cup experience and took the bronze by half a point.
 Men's 50 metre rifle prone at the 2000 Summer Olympics was held on 21 September. The qualification round of 60 shots was fired between 09:30 and 10:45 Australian Eastern Standard Time (UTC+10), and the final round of 10 additional shots at 11:30. Jonas Edman, previously more well known as a 300 metre shooter, took a one-point lead in the qualification round, and eventually won by a 0.9-point margin.

Summary

After the 1996 Olympics, gold medalist [Yang Ling] led his Chinese team to the World Championship in team running target and also won a silver medal in the team standard pistol event. In Sydney, he became the first shooter to repeat as gold medalist in the running target event.

 Chinese shooters excelled in the men's 10 m running target event. Yang Ling won the final, Niu Zhiyuan the bronze, with Oleg Moldovan splitting the two Chinese medal winners. He became the Republic of Moldova's first Olympic shooting medallist and nearly won that country's first gold, missing by a mere 0.1 of a point. Yang performed excellently and rose to the challenge presented by some formidable adversaries.
The men's skeet shooting competition at the 2000 Summer Olympics was the last shooting event of the Sydney Games, held on 22 and 23 September. Yang Ling successfully defended his title, a tenth of a point ahead of Oleg Moldovan.

Men's Trap

Date Started: September 16, 2000
Date Finished: September 17, 2000

Competitors 41from 28 nations

Summary

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.

 A capacity crowd at the clay target arena savoured Michael Diamond's second consecutive Olympic gold medal win for Australia in the men's trap. The overwhelming support and constant chanting from the audience and the hot and blustery conditions combined to make shooting very difficult. But Diamond demonstrated his supremacy in the event by shooting a perfect 25 in the final to win with 147. Great Britain's Ian Peel won silver with 142 and Italy's Giovanni Pellielo bronze with 140 points.
 The men's trap shooting competition at the 2000 Summer Olympics was held on 16 and 17 September. By defending his title from Atlanta, Michael Diamond won the host country's only gold medal in the shooting competitions.

Men's Double Trap

 Host City: Sydney, Australia
Venue(s): Sydney International Shooting Centre, Cecil Park, New South Wales
Date Started: September 20, 2000
Date Finished: September 20, 2000

Competitors 25from 20 nations

Summary

The defending champion was Australian [Russell Mark] who hoped to emulate his teammate, [Michael Diamond], who had defended his gold medal in single trap three days before this event. Mark led the preliminary round by two birds, but faltered in the final and was tied by Britain'€™s [Richard Faulds], who had been training with Mark. In the shoot-off, Mark missed the third clay to give Faulds the gold medal. The bronze medal went to Kuwaiti [Fehaid Al-Deehani], the first medal ever won at the Olympics for Kuwait.

 A massive audience attended the fifth day of competition. Most were there for what was supposed to be the second golden chapter for Australia's men's trap shooters. It was far from the best day for shooting, windy and hot, with a very real threat that the smoke from a local bushfire would be blown over Cecil Park. However, another kind of gloom fell over the Australian crowd. After the euphoria that greeted Michael Diamond's win in the single trap, Russell Mark played his part for all but the final seconds of the double trap. Leading by two clear shots, he dropped a double on the 23rd shot. This forced a shoot-off for the gold with Briton Richard Faulds, who had hung on tenaciously behind a seemingly unbeatable Mark.
The drama continued in the shoot-off as both missed one of their first pair, but Faulds was not so generous after Mark missed a second target. Faulds hit both his targets to win the gold. Fehaid Al Deehani of Kuwait won bronze after an excellent effort which left him just one shot behind in the final round. Russell Mark's loss was the focus for the local media but it was Richard Fauld's patience and poise as well as his excellent final pair that mattered.
On this day the polar extremes of sporting emotion had been very much in evidence at Cecil Park. For Richard Faulds it was ecstasy, for Russell Mark and his Australian followers it was agony. Rapturous applause and intense support can be dysfunctional in precision events such as shooting and archery. They can be distracting and can even precipitate a state of over-arousal. During this final, the collective expectation and desire for gold poured out of the steep scaffold stands and perhaps that worked against the Australian.
 The men's double trap competition at the 2000 Summer Olympics was held on 20 September. Home shooter Russell Mark set a new Olympic record in the qualification round and was close to defending his inaugural double trap title from Atlanta, but lost the gold medal shoot-off to Richard Faulds. Fehaid Al Deehani won the first Olympic medal ever for Kuwait.

Men's Skeet

 Host City: Sydney, Australia
Venue(s): Sydney International Shooting Centre, Cecil Park, New South Wales
Date Started: September 22, 2000
Date Finished: September 23, 2000

Competitors 49from 36 nations

Summary

The Ukraine'€™s [Mykola Michev] won the gold medal by shooting a perfect 150, the first time a possible had been achieved in skeet at the Olympics. The top shooter in the last few years had been Italy'€™s [Andrea Benelli], who was World Champion in 1987 and 1990, but had struggled at the 1996 Olympics, winning a disappointing bronze medal. In 2000, he fared worse, making the final, but placing fifth. He would finally win his gold medal at Athina in 2004.

 There was another outstanding effort on the last day. Ukraine's Mykola Milchev in the men's skeet scored a perfect 150 to win gold from Petr Malek of the Czech Republic by two targets. The US's James Graves took bronze, a further shot behind.
Throughout the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games, shooters at Cecil Park displayed the highest levels of sportsmanship. The camaraderie amongst them was exceptional, despite agonisingly close finishes and the obvious intense competition for sport's highest award, an Olympic medal. Russell Mark called for the partisan crowd to be quiet during his competitors' turns and even expressed his dismay at his supporters' cheering of his opponents' misses.
The Sydney 2000 shooting competition was logistically successful and extremely enjoyable; naturally this was largely due to the athletes, coaches and officials, ably assisted by dedicated volunteers. Their efforts and their enthusiasm will be one of the enduring memories of the 2000 Olympic Games.
 The men's skeet shooting competition at the 2000 Summer Olympics was the last shooting event of the Sydney Games, held on 22 and 23 September. Mykola Milchev of Ukraine became the first shooter to hit all 150 targets at an Olympic competition in skeet.
