Accokeek, MD (September 27, 2012) Beretta USA team shooter Vincent Hancock continues to add to his medal collection, winning a silver medal at the recent ISSF World Cup Finals in Maribor, Slovenia. This silver medal comes on the heels of Hancock’s recent historic gold medal in Men’s Skeet at the 2012 London Olympics.
Competing for the last time as a member of the US Army Marksmanship Unit, Hancock obliterated 122 out of 125 qualification targets using his trusted Beretta DT-10
, the same shotgun that brought him gold two short months ago. A final round score of 24/25 targets secured the second place finish for Hancock, just three targets short of a first place finish and another gold medal. As the competitive season draws to a close, Beretta USA congratulates Vincent Hancock on a successful and historic year, and looks forward to his continued role on Team Beretta, the transition to his new DT11
, and his continued success as a competitive shooter.
