Kim Rhode Sets New Olympic Record By Winning Another Gold

For All Media: July 30, 2012

Washington, D.C. – Through London’s rain and lightning, U.S. Olympian and SCI Life Member Kim Rhode became the first U.S. athlete to win five medals in five consecutive Olympic games, and also broke an Olympic record of shooting 99 out of 100 targets.  This historic accomplishment was triggered when Kim won the gold medal in Women’s Skeet.

“The hunting and shooting community is reveling in Kim’s astounding accomplishment from this weekend’s Olympic Skeet Shooting gold medal performance,” said SCI president John Whipple. “Not only did Kim set an Olympic record of shooting 99 out of 100, she also is the first American athlete to win a medal in five consecutive Olympic Games.  She embodies the excellence of an Olympic legend.”

“SCI is proud to sponsor Kim Rhode during her historic win.  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,” concluded Whipple.
