When did Olympic shooting become an event?

French nobleman Baron Pierre de Coubertin orchestrated the first modern Olympic Games in 1896 in Athens, Greece. It began with nine competitive sports, including shooting. A former French pistol champion, de Coubertin supported the inclusion of four pistol and two high-power rifle events on the Olympic program. Shooting events have been a part of all the Olympic Games except the 1904 Games in St. Louis, Missouri, and the 1928 Olympic Games in Amsterdam. Individual and team events were fired until 1948, when team contests were eliminated by the Union Internationale de Tiro (UIT). The number of Olympic shooting events has ranged from a low of two at the 1932 Los Angeles to a high of 21 events in Atwerp in 1920. Beginning in 2008 at the Beijing Olympic Games, the Olympic program now includes 15 events: six for women and nine for men. The athletes are divided into shotgun, rifle and pistol disciplines.
