George Patton places fifth in the decathalon -a contrversy over his score in the pistol shooting aspect meant the difference between 1st and 5th place-the judges concluded Patton had missed the target entirely on one of his shots -although each target showed a grouping of nearly dead center accuracy .
When asked to comment about this all Paton said was ''one of my bullets must have gone through the same hole .'' The spirit of these games , at least in the miltary aspect should not nor shall be marred by petty squabling.''
his shooting scores were 10-10-10-10-10-9-9-10-0-10-10-10- do you think he completely missed a target or a bullet went through the same hole -in the 4000 meters he finished third as he hit the ''wall' with 50 meters left and walked across and passed out .
The more I read of this man the more impressed I am .
