    Defending champion and world record holder Vincent Hancock put on a shooting masterclass to retain Olympic gold in the men's skeet on Tuesday.

    The American waltzed through the course downing all 25 targets to score 148, and Olympic record for a final.

    "It's just part of building a legacy that I want to leave for my kids and for the youth of America and the world for that matter," said Hancock, who for a double Olympic champion is still only 23 years of age.

    "It's not just about medals - it's about how big I can grow the sport and how many people I can bring into it," added Hancock, a sergeant in the U.S. army.

    Anders Golding of Denmark pushed Hancock close, missing just once for a total of 146 for silver, while Nasser Al-Attiya of Qatar defeated Russia's Valery Shomin in a bronze shootout after they tied on 144.
