Federal Ammunition sponsored shooters Austen Smith and Vincent Hancock won the gold in the Skeet Mixed Team event at the 2023 International Shooting Sport Federation World Cup held in Lonato, Italy from July 8-17.

The Team USA shotgunners defeated a Chilean team by three points in the gold medal match, 42-39, on Thursday, July 13.

The medals secured at this match add to an already accomplished-filled 2023 shooting season for Hancock, a three-time Olympic gold medalist, along with Smith, a 2022 World Champion and fellow Olympian.

In addition, Hancock, a Georgia native and Smith, who hails from Keller, Texas, earned the 2023 USA Shooting National Skeet Championship Men’s and Women’s titles earlier this year at Hillsdale College in Hillsdale, Michigan.

“Austen and Vincent have set the bar for international skeet shooting in our country and are excellent representatives for the U.S.A.,” Federal Ammunition’s Vice President of Marketing Jason Nash said. “We are happy and excited to see them reach the top of the podium at this major event. Their accomplishments reflect their talent and dedication. They are a great fit for Team Federal.”
