A chat with Kim Rhode – Team USA, Women’s Skeet

Kim Rhode Facts:

OLYMPIC ACCOLADES: Only American to have won five individual medals…Trying to become just the third woman in Olympic history to win medals in six Olympic Games, joining Birgit Schmidt-Fischer (GER/Canoe) and Elisabeta Oleniuc-Lipa (ROM/Rowing)…In Rio, will become just the second U.S. Woman ever to compete in six Olympic Games.

Rhode is now the first American to qualify for Olympic teams on five different continents.

A sixth consecutive Olympic medal in Rio and Rhode would stand alone in U.S. Olympic history as the only person ever to earn six consecutive Olympic medals. After earning a fifth medal in London, she already owns the mark for those competing in an individual sport but this would put her ahead of Dara Torres (swimming) and Teresa Edwards (basketball) for most consecutive Olympic medals earned by an American. A sixth medal would also tie her with luge great Armin Zöggeler of Italy for most consecutive individual Olympic medals by any Olympian.
