ANOKA, Minnesota – -(Ammoland.com)- Federal Premium Ammunition sponsored shooter and brand ambassador Vincent Hancock extended his 2018 winning streak by capturing his third consecutive Men’s Skeet World Cup gold medal of the season.

The two-time Olympic champion took top honors at the International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) World Cup in Siggiwei, Malta. His previous 2018 World Cup golds came in Guadalajara, Mexico, and Changwon, Korea.

It was the 10th World Cup gold medal in the 29-year-old American shooter’s illustrious career and, by his own admission, one of the hardest fought victories.

“This was definitely one of hardest competitions to shoot in,” Hancock said as the dust settled after a rollercoaster finish. “The wind was definitely a factor in the last few days. Today it kind of settled down a little bit, the targets were more consistent and we saw a lot of high scores. Unfortunately in the final we all missed quite a few targets, there was a little bit of a glare because of the sun getting so low behind the high house.”

After missing targets number 39 and 40 at station 5, Hancock slipped into 2nd place before nailing a perfect streak of 20 hits to seal his win with 56 hits out of 60 clays.

Hancock leads Federal Premium Ammunition’s support for USA Shooting, a non-profit organization that promotes the shooting sports and prepares American athletes to bring home Olympic gold. For details, visit: www.usashooting.org.
