Kim Rhode was already an Olympic legend before the first competitive shot was ever fired in Rio, but after winning a bronze medal in Women's Skeet this year—her legacy is cemented in the shooting sports arena. Rhode is the first American athlete in history to win six consecutive medals in an individual sport—and the first shooter ever to medal on five continents.

Kim and her fellow teammates are a reflection of all that is great about sporting competition, what is best about America and what is best about the benefits of competitive target shooting."

To celebrate Rhode's history-making achievements, Winchester is once again featuring Kim Rhode on boxes of AA target loads. The standard AA loads, AA128, will be in the commemorative boxes and available at Winchester retailers.

"We're very proud to have the Winchester name behind our team and are very thankful to have those legendary AA shotshells in our shooting vests."
