Vincent Hancock, a three-time Olympic champion and four-time world champion, last week captured a silver medal at the 2022 International Shooting Sport Federation Shotgun World Championship in Osijek, Croatia. Hancock is sponsored by Federal Ammunition.

His silver-medal performance in the Men’s Individual Skeet event also earned Team USA a Men’s Skeet quota for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

Walking away from the five qualification rounds in third place with a score of 123 (+32), in the final Hancock finished behind the gold medalist, Azmy Mehelba of Egypt. In addition, Hancock landed another silver medal at the competition, with U.S. teammates Dustan Taylor and Christian Elliott in the Men’s Team Skeet event.

Many will remember when Hancock earned his third Olympic gold medal in the Men’s Skeet event last year at the Tokyo 2020 Games.

For Hancock, the 2022 ISSF World Championship in Croatia was a challenging event with some “great competitors,” serving as the culmination of this year’s shooting season.

“My 2022 season has been a big success and certainly has been one to remember,” said Hancock. “I was happy that I was able to perform well enough to secure a quota spot for the upcoming biggest event in the world which is Paris 2024. I thank my sponsors, which includes Federal Ammunition, for being my partners and providing the gear needed to succeed.”

The silver medal earned at this year’s ISSF World Championship in Croatia adds to an already jam-packed 2022 shooting season for Hancock. Some highlights: Winning gold at the 2022 USA Shooting Skeet Nationals Championship over the summer in Hillsdale, Michigan, also capturing three gold medals in individual and team shooting events at the 2022 ISSF World Cup in Baku, Azerbaijan.

“Vincent has set the bar for international skeet shooting in our country and also represented the U.S.A. in Tokyo with a stellar performance,” said Federal Ammunition Vice President of Marketing, Jason Nash. “We are eager and excited to see him qualify for Team USA and shoot for yet another Olympic gold. His accomplishments reflect Federal’s dedication to its quality products and to the shooting sports.”
