Olympic medalist Kim Rhode no stranger to Minnesota

It’s too bad the shooting sports and archery don’t receive a more prominent position in Olympic coverage but it’s hard to avoid that this year with the United States teams doing so well.

The men’s archery team took silver and skeet shooter Kim Rhode took home Olympic gold. She did so in a record-setting performance far surpassing her competition. Her score of 99 out of 100 was near perfect and a full eight targets better than the second place finisher.

She also has accomplished something no other Olympiad has ever done—she has won five medals in five consecutive Olympics. Carl Lewis never did that nor did Jackie Joyner-Kersee.
