U.S. Army Sgt. Vincent Hancock Wins Olympic Gold (Video)

Sgt. Vincent Hancock Wins Gold

U.S. Army Sgt. Vincent Hancock won a gold medal today in skeet-shooting at the 2012 London Olympics. The 23-year-old, who is based at Fort Benning in Georgia, also set an Olympic record in his event, according to USA Today:

With his final shot, Hancock broke into a wide grin and pumped his right fist several times in celebration of his second gold in as many Olympics.

Hancock also won a gold medal in the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. He is a member of the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit.

Shooting USA TV did a profile on Hancock when he was a teenager living at home in Georgia. I've posted the video above.
