American Takes Gold in Women’s Skeet, Setting Records

Congratulations Kim Rhodes. It looks like she’s doing some amazing shooting over there in London. Way to go!

Check it out, from the NYTs:

“LONDON – Under drizzly, gray British skies, the shooter Kim Rhode made American Olympic history.

Rhode, 33, became the first American athlete to win five medals in an individual event in five consecutive Olympic Games. She earned a gold medal in women’s skeet on Sunday, setting an Olympic record and tying the world record by hitting 99 out of 100 targets. She also became the first woman to win three gold medals in Olympic shooting.

Rhode hit an Olympic record 74 of 75 targets in the preliminary rounds at the Royal Artillery Barracks, shattering the 2008 record of 72.” Read the entire piece here.
