By H. Kautsch
At the 1924 Summer Olympics, ten events in shooting were contested. These would be the last Games in which team events were part of the Olympic shooting program.
La Société de Tir de Reims (The Reims Shooting Society) is still housed in the premises from 1924 as featured on the plaque.
Heinrich Kautsch (1859-1943), was an Austrian sculptor and medallist who worked in Paris as of 1889 and in 1893 was a member of the Jury of Fine Arts at the Chicago World’s Fair. In addition to medals and plaques, Heinrich Kautsch also created a number of funerary monuments, which can be found in Amsterdam, Prague, Meran, and Salzburg.
