America can be proud of these two Skeet Champions





TOKYO – Long before U.S. skeet shooters Amber English and Vincent Hancock shared golden glory atop the podium at the Tokyo Olympics on the same day, they shared meals together as teenagers in their respective childhood homes.

English, 31, and Hancock, 32, met when they were each 16 and just beginning their shooting careers. Since then, they’ve remained close confidants, leaning on each other for advice and inspiration throughout half a lifetime of shooting.

“I couldn't be happier for her,” Hancock said. “I love that girl like a sister. Now we both have medals around our necks.”

In the women’s event, English came out on top in the final with 56 hits, setting an Olympic record at the Asaka Shooting Range. She only missed four shots in the final, finishing ahead of Italy’s Diana Bacosi (51 hits) and China’s Wei Meng (46 hits).

The Colorado Springs native set herself up for success in the final by finishing third in the qualifier with 121 hits, just four less than a perfect score.

“I was a little relieved that I didn't have to shoot off prior to the final,” English said. “So I was happy to walk into that position all alone. My last round of today, I knew I had to shoot a 25 and I was just really, really happy that I was able to perform when I needed.”

A push to get back into shooting

For English, the road to Tokyo twisted and turned in ways that almost led her to quit the sport. English fell short of making the 2012 London team and the 2016 Rio team. In early 2016, her father Mike, a five-time national shooting champion, died.

To care for herself mentally, English took time away from the range. She joined the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit in February 2017 with the aspiration of becoming an officer. At first, English was hesitant to throw herself back into the sport.

“After he passed, it was very, very hard to get back on the range,” English said. “But actually the first person who got me back into shooting and on the range was Vinny. He was out in Colorado Springs for some events. So I owe him a lot for pushing me to get out there and do it.”

Amber English (USA) and Vincent Hancock (USA) both won gold in the skeet events during the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Summer Games at Asaka Shooting Range.
After taking the leap back into shooting with Hancock’s encouragement, she quickly found her rhythm again. In 2018, English earned a bronze medal at the world championships. She earned two World Cup medals, too – one in 2018 and one in 2019.

Hancock, now a three-time Olympic gold medalist and the first to do so in skeet, is no stranger to success. But he had experienced wavering love for the sport, too. After becoming the first man to earn consecutive skeet gold medals at the Olympics in 2008 and 2012, Hancock missed the final in 2016 and finished 15th.

The hiccup taught Hancock to appreciate not only the highs, the gold medals and the record-setting performances, but it also showed him the importance of choosing to be happy no matter the outcome. Hancock took 2017 off and when he returned to the sport in 2018, he went undefeated won the world championship.

That newfound mentality powered him through a shaky final round of the qualifier at the Tokyo Olympics when Hancock missed three shots. He corrected his mechanics in the shoot-off and refused to let a few missed targets foil his upcoming final.

“After that, I really started enjoying myself,” Hancock said. “I was like, I don't know if anybody else noticed it, but I had a little bit of a grin coming off after that first station (of the final). I'm like, alright, it's game on. We're good. Let's do this again.”

Hancock completed the final with 59 hits and missed just one, placing ahead of Denmark’s Jesper Hansen (55 hits) and Kuwait’s Abdullah Al-Rashidi (46 hits). Through two rounds and one station, Hancock had a perfect 24 hits and was tied with Finland's Eetu Kallioinen and Al-Rashidi.

Third gold medal for U.S. shooters

The four-time Olympian missed his first shot at station four in the third round, but held on to the lead and never missed another target. When he curled up to the ground after securing gold, it wasn’t because he was celebrating – his back hurt. He was simply trying to find some relief after a grueling competition.

“Just coming out here and trying to compete for a gold medal, it's exhausting,” Hancock said. “It truly is. Not everybody's able to come out here and compete at the level that they want, so you never know.”

An Olympic opportunity only comes once every four years, five years in this particular cycle, and both English and Hancock managed to compete at the level they aspired to. Just five days into Olympic competition, the U.S. has already earned three gold medals in shooting.

“It sets the tone of what can be expected from USA Shooting,” Hancock said. “Our athletes have been competing at a really high level for quite a few years now. I think that's because we're a small sport, we don't get quite the recognition. But when looking at the number of medals that we win on a yearly basis, it's impressive.”

English and Hancock were happy to share the golden spotlight on Monday, and they’re eager to make room for more U.S. shooters in the coming days.

"Easily offended"? uh not quite fruitcake . There are things that annoy me sure but I can't remember the last time something offended me. I don't believe in safe spaces (your side is the ones that invented those never forget).

And I hate to break it to ya but your "humor" is really falling flat in practically every thread I've seen you post in. You realize you're the only laughing at your cringe worthy jokes right? Everyone in this thread is puzzled as to why you would make some snide unfunny remarks about that American Olympian champion? Like what was the point? Did she do something to trigger you? It makes no sense and you come across as a miserable/pathetic human being.
Now I'll let you get back to talking about cocks. Have a great day!

Anytime i see the word "Skeet" i'm reminded of a song he did.

"Skeet" is another term for cumming. "Ahhhh skeet skeet". "I skeeted on her ass"

"angry replies"?? Uh what? Where? I just was puzzled as to why that Adolf lib douche would derail this positive / feel good story about two American Olympians becoming champions and proceed to make fun of the woman champion by saying she has a cock. Thats all. Just sorta bizarre imo.

As for my avatar, what can I say I am a big fan of James Cameron movies and I'm looking forward to Avatar 2....sue me.
