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.

"We are proud of our long-standing partnership with USA Shooting, and particularly Kim Rhode," said Brett Flaugher, vice president of marketing, sales and strategy at Winchester Ammunition. "We offer a heartfelt congratulations to all the athletes who participated in this year's games. 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.

Winchester Ammunition has enjoyed a long-time connection with Rhode and the USA Shooting team as the exclusive shotshell sponsor and supplier since 1999.

"We all owe a great deal of our success to Winchester and their AAs. They've helped us practice, train and compete with the confidence we need just knowing we're shooting the best product out there," said Kim Rhode. "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."

Throughout 2016, Winchester has celebrated 150 years of legendary excellence—a historic milestone representing a steadfast commitment to the hunting and shooting sports traditions and future generations of sportsmen.
