Vincent Hancock: Became the first skeet shooter to win back-to-back titles
US Army sergeant Vincent Hancock retained his Olympic title in the men's skeet on Tuesday.
The 23-year-old from Columbus, Georgia, added the gold medal at London 2012 to the one he won four years ago at Beijing, becoming the first skeet shooter to win back-to-back titles.
Hancock also broke his own Olympic record, missing just two shots and firing a perfect 25 in the final, to register 148 points in the discipline which sees competitors fire at clay targets from seven different positions on the range.
Hancock finished two points ahead of Denmark's Anders Golding, who took silver.
Nasser Al-Attiya of Qatar won the bronze after a shoot-off with Russia's Valeriy Shomin, who had to be content with fourth on his 41st birthday.
Great Britain duo Rory Warlow and Richard Brickell both narrowly missed out on places in the final.
Warlow, 22, from Plymouth, began the day four points off the lead and 36-year-old Brickell, from Newbury, a point further back following yesterday's opening qualifiers.
Another big crowd had gathered on the shotgun range at the Royal Artillery Barracks for the skeet - where competitors fire at clay targets from seven different positions.
Both Brits realistically needed to shoot perfect 50s over their two remaining rounds this morning to stand any chance of progressing, and both opened up with 25 to raise the hopes of the noisy home support.
But Warlow missed two shots in round two and Brickell one, leaving them tied on 118, just two points short of forcing a shoot-off.
America's Vincent Hancock leads the way going into this afternoon's final with a total of 123, missing just two clays over all five rounds.
