The men's 300 metre free rifle, three positions was a shooting sports event held as part of the Shooting programs at the 1920 Summer Olympics programme.

It was the third appearance of the 300 metre rifle three positions event at an Olympic Games. The competition was held on 31 July 1920, with 40 shooters from 8 nations competing.[1]

Participating nations and athletes[edit]

The scores are only known for the shooters of the best eight nations, and so according to 40 shooters from 8 nations participated in this event.[1] However the scores for the Men's team free rifle uses the scores from this event (the summed score of the five athletes form each nation). Because these events were contested concurrently, shooters that competed in the team event should have competed automatically in this event. In that case 5 athletes from Italy, Spain, Belgium, Greece, Czechoslovakia and South Africa would also have competed in this event, making 70 athletes from 14 nations.[2]


The scores are only known for the shooters of the best eight nations. The maximum score was 1200. The scores of this event were summed to the result of the team free rifle competition.
