Hancock goes back-to-back

UNITED States' army sergeant Vincent Hancock has won back-to-back gold medals after breaking his own Olympic record in the men's skeet.

The 23-year-old was in imperious form, missing just two shots and firing a perfect 25 in the final to add another gold to the one he won in Beijing.

Denmark's Anders Golding claimed the silver medal after finishing two points behind Hancock, while Nasser Al-Attiya of Qatar saw off Russia's Valerly Shomin in a tense bonze medal shoot-off.
