Summary

The defending champion was American Vincent Hancock but the favorite coming was world #1 Tore Brovold. However, Norwegian Brovold had a difficult time, placing only 27th of 36 shooters in the qualifying, hitting only 113 of 125 targets. Shooting in a drizzling rain, Hancock led the qualifiers with a 123, and in the final, defended his gold medal by hitting all 25 targets for 148, an Olympic record. It was the first back-to-back victory in Olympic men’s skeet. Denmark’s Anders Golding was second in qualifying with 122, and he also had the second highest score in the final with 24, for a total of 146 and the silver medal. As with all the shotgun events in London, the bronze medal came down to a shoot-off, with Russian Valery Shomin tying with Qatari Nasser Al-Attiya, both scoring 121 in qualifying and 23 in the final. The shoot-off went six targets, with Shomin missing on that one as Al-Attiya won the bronze.
