Kim Rhode Silvers

Looks like Kim Rhode managed to give her competitors quite a run for their money in Women’s skeet:

Cainero, Rhode and Germany’s Christine Brinker were tied with 93 points each, an Olympic record, after the final round of the women’s skeet. The Italian won the shoot-off for gold in the rainy conditions, hitting both skeets while Rhode and Brinker hit 1-of-2.

Rhode then hit both targets in the second shoot-off to pick up silver and Brinker settled for third after connecting on just 1-of-2 skeets.

This marks the fourth Olympic medal for Rhode, who won gold in the double trap event in 1996 and 2004 and bronze in that category at the 2000 Sydney Games.

“I have a collection now. I have a gold, a silver and a bronze,” said Rhode.

We congratulate her.  She has represented her country well.

UPDATE: Voolfie comments: “Kim Rhode just won the Silver Medal in Women’s Skeet.  FOUR Olympiads, two different sports and nothing worse than a Bronze Medal, ever…2G; 1S; 1B.  Simply amazing.”  Indeed
