Notes:

  • For the team free rifle the IOC medal database lists also Léon Johnson and André Parmentier as silver medalists for France; and L. H. Clermont and C. Dupre as bronze medalists for Haiti, but all these shooters never participated in this competition.
  • For the team running deer, single shots the IOC medal database lists also Hans Nordvik and Oluf Wesmann-Kjær as gold medalists for Norway; and Karl Richter and Karl-Gustaf Svensson as silver medalists for Sweden, but all these shooters never participated in this competition.
  • For the team running deer, double shots the IOC medal database lists also John Faunthorpe and John O'Leary as gold medalists for Great Britain; Hans Nordvik and Oluf Wesmann-Kjær as silver medalists for Norway; and Edward Benedicks and Karl-Gustaf Svensson as bronze medalists for Sweden, but all these shooters never participated in this competition.
  • For the team clay pigeons the IOC medal database lists all six team members as medalists. The shooters below the line were the weakest of their teams and their scores did not count for the team score.
