During Day 3 of the Tokyo Olympics, Team USA shooter Vincent Hancock won his third gold medal in skeet shooting.

Hancock finished with an Olympic record score of 59, besting Jesper Hansen of Denmark and Abdullah Alrashidi of Kuwait. The four-time Olympian previously won gold in 2008 and 2012. Hancock is the only shooter to ever win the event multiple times.

Amber English also became the second American to win the women’s skeet shooting event, taking the gold with an Olympic record score of 56.

Regan Smith made history, setting a new Olympic record with a 57.86 time in the women’s 100m backstroke semifinals.

The IOC revised its rule on masks and allowed athletes to remove their masks for 30 seconds so that photographers can get shots of the medalists without masks
