Shooter Kim Rhode was the first woman to win medals in six consecutive Olympics

Share

Kim Rhode achieved Olympic history in women’s skeet shooting, winning the bronze medal to become the first woman and first summer Olympian to medal in six consecutive Olympics.

In her career, Rhode has won three golds, one silver and two bronzes. She is the only athlete ever to win Olympic medals in all three shooting disciplines (trap, double trap and skeet) since making her Olympic debut and winning the double trap gold at Atlanta 1996 as a 17-year-old.
