Vincent Hancock of the United States won the Olympic gold medal Tuesday in men's skeet shooting.

He became the first person to win back-to-back gold medals in skeet and joined teammate Kimberly Rhode in sweeping the skeet titles at the London Olympics.

Anders Golding of Denmark won the silver medal and Nasser Al-Attiya of Qatar won a shootout to capture the bronze. It was the third Olympic medal ever for Qatar, all of them bronze.
