Federal Ammunition-sponsored shooter and three-time Olympic champion Vincent Hancock won the silver medal in Men’s Skeet at the 2022 International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) World Championships in Osijek, Croatia. With the win, Hancock has now qualified the USA for a berth in Men’s Skeet for the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris, France.
“Vincent has set the bar for international clay pigeon shooting in our country and also represented the US in Tokyo with a stellar performance,” said Federal Ammunition Vice President of Marketing Jason Nash. “We are eager and excited to see him qualify for Team USA and aim for another Olympic gold. His accomplishments reflect Federal’s dedication to quality products and shooting sports.”
The medal won in this championship match adds to an already complete 2022 shooting season for Hancock, who won gold at the 2022 National Skeet Championships last summer in Hillsdale, Michigan. He also won three gold medals in individual and team shooting events at the 2022 ISSF World Cup in Baku, Azerbaijan.
“My 2022 season has been extremely successful and certainly one to remember,” Hancock said. “This was a fun and challenging event with some great competitors. I was glad that I was able to perform well enough to secure a spot at the next biggest event in the world, which is Paris 2024. I am grateful to my sponsors, which includes Federal Ammunition, for being my partners and providing me with the necessary equipment to be successful. . .”
