Eight years after competing in his first Olympics, Moore qualified for his third Australian team, as a 54-year-old, at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, by placing second in the men's free pistol from the 2007 Oceania Shooting Championships, coincidentally in his home city Sydney.[1] He scored a total of 571 targets in the preliminary rounds of the men's 10 m air pistol, by one point ahead of Trinidad and Tobago's Roger Daniel from the final attempt, finishing only in thirty-sixth place.[5] Three days later, Moore placed thirty-fifth in his second event, 50 m pistol, by one point behind French sport shooter and five-time Olympian Franck Dumoulin, with a total score of 546 targets.[6]
