The United States is holding their own in Tokyo. Even as the gymnastics team were forced to take a procedural Silver Medal, Skeet landed Gold.
Amber English, Lieutenant US Army, took the Gold for Women’s Skeet as Vincent Hancock took mens and Will Shaner took the 10m air rifle event. English one by 1 point.
Hancock repeated Gold wins from London and Beijing.
English was not Team USA’s first choice for gold, Amber Hill unfortunately tested positive for COVID-19 prior to the trip to Tokyo. That gave English the spotlight, the lead spot, and she brought home the win.
It’s a good day for the games and the U S of A, and America’s truest sport.
