Kim Rhode Describes Winning Olympic Gold Medal

SCI sponsored Olympic shooter Kim Rhode in the 2012 London Olympics.  There, she became the first U.S. athlete to win five medals in five consecutive Olympic games. She also broke the Olympic record of shooting 99 out of 100 targets. Rhode, a Sables and SCI Life Member, sat down with SCI’s Publications Director, Steve Comus, at the 2012 Grand American to describe what it’s like to win an Olympic gold medal and what she’s planning for the future.

SCI Olympian Kim Rhode

Kim Rhode, a Life Member of SCI and Sables, has been an avid hunter since her early childhood years. Her competitive life began at age 10 when she took up American Skeet, and was the World Champion by age 13 when she also became captain of the All-American team. Rhode didn’t stop with American Skeet, however, as she soon added Olympic-style International Double Trap and International Skeet to her impressive shooting resume.

Most recently (July 2012), Rhode set new world records at the 2012 Olympics in London by being the first American to medal in five consecutive Olympics and for shooting 99 out of 100 targets.

“SCI is proud to sponsor Kim Rhode during her historic win,” said SCI President John Whipple. “Her performance definitely puts women’s skeet on the map for the general public to fully appreciate. Thank you to Kim for being a true ambassador for the sport.”
