inglese, 31, detto in un'intervista su “Volpe & Amici” il venerdì che dopo l'improvvisa scomparsa del padre in 2016, è stata incoraggiata a non arrendersi dal collega sparatutto americano Vincent Hancock, who just took home his third gold medal.
“It was a very tough battle, Ad essere onesti,” English said.
“It took a little bit for me to get back on the range and Vincent Hancock, who just won a third gold, was kind of the reason — he was in Colorado Springs, Egli ha detto, ‘I believe in you. Come out here, we’re going to shoot.’ We cried after station one and I kept shooting.”
The goal was simple: “Don’t quit and believe in yourself and keep going.”
The Colorado Springs native set an Olympic record after shooting 56 di 60 in the women’s skeet final to defeat Italy’s Diana Bacosi, earning her first gold medal.
