Clay pigeon shooters at Laverton R.A.A.F. base. The shooters fired five times and then moved to an adjacent box and trap to increase the randomness of the targets (100 shots in total).

Bird lovers need not be alarmed - live birds were used at the first two Olympics, then replaced by clay targets tossed into the area at random angles to emulate the flight of a flock of startled pigeons.

Hockey, No. 2 Arena, Olympic Park. Bespectacled Belgium goalkeeper, Van Leer, clears a New Zealand attack.
