Six-time Olympic medalist
Kim Rhode chalked up yet another career victory at this year's first World Cup stop in New Delhi, India. This is the 16th World Cup victory of her career.

The 37-year-old has displayed no signs of slowing down after setting an Olympic milestone with a sixth consecutive medal win last summer in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. She won the International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) World Cup Final trophy last October and now, with her first skeet test of 2017—she has excelled once again.


In addition to her historic six Olympic medals, Rhode now has earned 25 career World Cup medals and another five World Cup Finals medals, including 19 total in Women’s Skeet. Last year, Winchester honored Rhode by featuring her image on boxes of AA target loads.

“I think there’s not really any secret,” Rhode said about her continued success. “It’s just a lot of hard work and a lot of practice. I owe a lot to my family and to my training. I’m just never giving up."
