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.
