Notably, Kim Rhode’s medal in Women’s Skeet marks her 34th career gold—spanning World Cups, the Pan American Games, Continental American Championships and Olympic Games combined. The NRA Director and six-time Olympic medalist also made history by becoming the first ever USA Shooting athlete to medal at a World Cup while being an active member of the ISSF Executive Committee. Rhode was elected as an ISSF vice president in December 2022.

Jacob and Prince’s victory over their fellow U.S. teammates in the Mixed Skeet Team gold medal match marks Prince’s first non-junior ISSF World Cup medal.

The U.S. Men’s Skeet Team faced Kuwait in the gold medal match, where they were ultimately victorious.

The Women’s Skeet Team fell short to Kazakhstan in the gold medal match.

See the full results of the match at the ISSF website.
