Vincent Hancock has been shooting since he was a very young child and started competing when he was 11 years old. Hancock also holds several national records in Men’s Skeet. In 2005, at the young age of 16, Vincent won his first World Championship title in Men’s Skeet and went on to win the prestigious International Shooting Sport Federation’s Shooter of the Year award. His gold-medal victory in London, puts him in elite company having become the first Olympic skeet shooter to win gold medals in the same event in consecutive Olympic Games.
