The United States Is 2 For 2 In Olympic Skeet

Following on the heels of Kim Rhode's gold medal in Women's Skeet, Sgt. Vincent Hancock became a back-to-back winner of the gold medal in Men's Skeet. Hancock took his first gold at the Beijing Olympic Games in 2008 and repeated this year in London.

In the course of winning this gold medal, Hancock broke his own Olympic record by scoring 148 out of 150 clays. He dropped one clay in each of the two qualifying rounds but was perfect in the finals. The silver medalist, Anders Golding of Denmark, had a 146 while the bronze medalist, Nasser Al-Attiya of Qatar, had a 144.

Sgt. Hancock is a member of the US Army Marksmanship Unit. According to this profile of him, he shoots a Beretta DT-10 with a Ergosign stock.
