AMAT Jean Pierre (1962) France / Shooting
Jean Pierre Amat is a rifle marksman, and a familiar figure in all the big team and individual rifle shooting events. Despite winning the world championships several times, he didn't make the podium at the Barcelona games. However in the 1996 Atlanta games, he twice managed a place on the podium. He got the bronze for the rifle category at 10 m, and won the three position event. After a shaky start to this competition, he went on to win 11 clear rounds and picked up the gold. In Sydney he was in such poor form that he failed to reach the final stages of the competition.
