Federal Ammunition sponsored shooter Vincent Hancock has qualified for a spot on the 2024 USA Shooting Men’s Skeet team, heading to the 2024 Summer Olympic Games in Paris, France, this summer.

Hancock’s performance during the 2024 USA Shooting Shotgun Selection Match, held at the Tucson Trap and Skeet Club in Tucson, Arizona, March 11-17, was stellar, with the three-time Olympic gold medalist breaking 250 out of 250 targets at the match.

“I’m incredibly grateful for this opportunity to continue doing what I love and to compete once again,” Hancock said. “I’m looking forward to competing in the biggest skeet event in the world. I thank my sponsors, [including] Federal Ammunition, for being my partners and providing the gear needed to succeed.”

Hancock will be competing at the Olympics for the fifth time this year after previously attending the Games in Beijing 2008, London 2012, Rio 2016 and Tokyo 2020. He is a three-time Olympic gold medalist, 2023 Pan American Games Champion and has many more major championships to his credit, including more than 24 international medals.

At the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, Hancock earned his third Olympic gold medal, the first skeet shooter in history to do so.

“Vincent has set a high bar for skeet shooting in our country over the last two decades, and he will be an excellent representative of the USA in Paris,” Federal Ammunition Vice President of Marketing Jason Nash said. “This means he could become the sixth athlete ever—and the first in shooting sports—to win the same individual event four times placing him in rarified air. We are eager and excited to see him shoot for yet another gold medal.”

Hancock relies on Federal Premium Gold Medal paper shotshells, which feature a high-quality brass head, harder shot and two-piece SoftCell wad design that reduces felt recoil and improves patterns.
