At the August 19, 2021, Benbrook City Council meeting, Mayor Dittrich honored Benbrook resident Vincent Hancock by proclamation designating August 19, 2021 as “Vincent Hancock Day” in the City of Benbrook. 

Mr. Hancock won gold in the men’s skeet event after shooting an Olympic record 59 out of 60.“I am thankful to be an athlete doing what I love to do, and this is special, thank you,” said Mr. Hancock, after retelling his story of glory from the 2020 Tokyo Olympic games. 

The Benbrook resident bested Jasper Hansen of Denmark and Abdullah Alrashidi of Kuwait to earn him his third gold medal in his career. “This is my third gold,” as he held up the medal so Council and the audience could see it, “and I will be trying to get a fourth in Paris in just a few more years.”
