Kim Rhode Makes Olympic History With Shooting Medal

posted on August 13, 2016

U.S. skeet shooter Kim Rhode made history yesterday in Rio when she became the first female athlete to win a medal in six consecutive Olympic Games.

The 37-year-old six-time Olympian won a bronze medal in the event, narrowly winning a shoot-off with China’s Wei Meng. Italian shooters Diana Bacosi and Chiara Cainero won the gold and silver medals in the event. 

Rhode is certainly no stranger to the Olympic podium. The veteran shotgunner ruled Olympic double trap competition for years, winning a gold medal in Atlanta in 1996, bronze in Sydney in 2000, and gold in 2004 in Athens. After switching to skeet shooting, Rhode took silver in Beijing in 2008 and gold again in London in 2012.
