Vincent Hancock turned in another dominating performance at the International Shooting Sport Federation World Cup in South Korea, earning another first-place skeet shooting victory.
This first place finish is Hancock’s fifth consecutive World Cup win and his sixth international win overall. Hancock earned the top spot Saturday, qualifying with 123 targets then beating second place winner, and fellow American Christian Elliot, in a shoot-off for the finals position. In finals, Hancock slammed 57 of the 60 targets, claiming the top spot.
“Thank you God for the opportunity to do what I love,” Hancock said on social media. “Thank you to my wife and little girls at home that put up with me being gone so much and thank you to my sponsors that help make this dream a reality. I couldn’t do it without any of you!”
Hancock added about teammate and silver medal winner Elliot, “Congratulations to Christian for an amazing competition and for winning his first World Cup Medal. He’s one of the best teammates, competitors and friends that somebody could ask for. I’m thankful for the opportunity to be there to witness his first medal of what I am sure will be [many] in the future. “
