EAST ALTON, Ill. (May 24, 2019) – Kim Rhode has once again found her way to the top of the podium, this time at the most recent World Cup in Changwon, Korea. Rhode, in second place after the qualifying rounds, charged into the lead during the Women’s Skeet Final and secured another gold medal finish.
Rhode has made herself a regular in the Gold Medal position recently and in the process set a new record as the first ISSF (International Shooting Sports Federation) competitor to win gold in four consecutive World Cup events. Winning is nothing new to this shooting veteran though. With twenty-one World Cup medals now in hand, Rhode further demonstrates why she is the best competitive shotgun athlete in history, and not one to underestimate in the lead up to the Olympic Games in Japan. Rhode’s sights are set on winning her 7th Olympic medal in 2020, which would make her the only Olympic athlete in history to medal in seven consecutive Olympic Games.
“We couldn’t be more proud of Kim and the way she represents the shooting sports and the Winchester brands.” Commented Winchester’s vice president of marketing and sales Matt Campbell. “While she is easily the most decorated competitive shooter in history, she remains very humble and extremely focused on perpetuating recreational shooting opportunities for future generations.”
Kim began shooting at the young age of ten and quickly discovered she had a unique talent in the shooting sports. Not long after, Winchester noticed this incredible shooting star and has enjoyed a relationship with her for 30 years now.
Kim uses Winchester® AA®– The Choice of Champions™. Specifically, Winchester’s AANL129 International® Target; a 24 gram load of #9 shot traveling at 1325 fps, developed specifically to meet the demanding requirements of the ISSF regulatory committee.
