Gun rights and gold medals: US shooters sweep the skeet in Tokyo

It was a rough winter for the US shooting team, with some members sent to practise in an abandoned Macy’s department store when the pandemic closed their training centre. At least in Tokyo they have acquired some high-end baubles.

Amber English won the women’s skeet gold medal on Monday and Vincent Hancock triumphed in the men’s event, a day after Will Shaner was victorious in the men’s 10-metre air rifle. All set Olympic record scores.

Hancock also won gold in Beijing and London. English, on her Olympic debut, defeated the reigning champion, Italy’s Diana Bacosi, by one point in a tense finish. She felt less composed than she looked. “I was extremely nervous,” she said after a quick search for a USA flag.
Once found, she held it aloft for photographers with pride, wonder and not a little relief. “I’m just like, Twilight Zone, right now. I’m just so thankful that it’s over,” she said.
