Another Tokyo Olympics event, another gold medal for the U.S. Shooting Team. After Amber English secured the gold medal for Team USA in the women’s skeet event on Monday morning at the Tokyo Olympics, her teammate Vincent Hancock followed up in men’s skeet with a gold medal of his own—marking his third career Olympic win in the event, which is the most for any skeet shooter in history.
Hancock, a two-time Olympic medalist, was the Men’s Skeet runner-up at the 2021 ISSF World Cup Shotgun in Italy, after falling one target short of winning the gold.
Hancock heads to his fourth consecutive Olympics, joined by rookie Phillip Jungman of the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit.
