Emmons, who had taken


time off since the Olym- pics, qualifi ed for the Final in second place with an im- pressive qualifi cation score of 1174; as well as 71x - known as “inner tens.” Inner tens are not used to calcu- late the actual score but are the number of shots that are in a smaller ring within the center ten ring and are only used in tie-breaking situa- tions.


In the Final, Emmons struggled in the kneeling portion and remained in eighth place until the last se- ries of prone shots where he moved up to sixth place. He later shot the highest score of the fi rst standing round (51.5) that would then move him into fourth place. Em- mons then faced Sanjev Ra- jput of India in a shootoff in the fi rst, single-elimination shot where he shot a 9.6 –


just .1 point behind Rajput and thus was eliminated from the competition. Upon his elimination, Emmons smiled proudly to the audience as he bowed and presented himself to the cheering, home-country crowd. Emmons’ score in the Final was 411.2. More than 430 athletes


from 53 countries came to Fort Benning to compete in ten Olympic events in the Rifl e and Pistol disciplines. Up next for the Rifl e/Pis-


tol team is the ISSF World Cup in Munich, Germany June 4 – 14.
