Spotlight > Olympic Gold Medalist Kim Rhode
As the youngest person to ever represent the U.S. on the Olympic Shooting Team and the youngest woman for any country in the world to make an Olympic shooting team, Kim has worked hard to achieve her dream. The road to the Olympics began at the age of 10. Kim practiced every day after school, sometimes until 9 or 10 o'clock at night and getting up at 4 am to complete her homework. A typical day of practice is 4 to 6 hours every single day. She has been training for 21 years. Her early training put her in the history books as the youngest girl to break 100 straight in American skeet at 12 years old. In 1994 and 1995 she was co-captain of the Open Ladies All-American Skeet Team. Kim attended Cherrylee Elementary School and Durfee Junior High in El Monte and in 1997 Kim graduated from Arroyo High School with a four-year varsity letter for shooting. She has gone on to win "hundreds" of medals and awards for her accomplishments and contributions to the shooting sports. The most notable of these are: 1996 Olympic Gold Medal in Double Trap, 2000 Olympic Bronze Medal, 2004 Olympic Gold Medal, 2008 Olympic Silver Medal in International Skeet, ten gold medals in World Cup competitions (seven in her International Doubles Trap event and three in her new event: International Skeet where she also set a world record in 2007). Most recently Kim captured a gold medal at the 2010 World Championships in Munich, Germany. In 1996 Kim set the Olympic record in double trap and in 2008 co-holds the Olympic record in Skeet. Kim also captured the gold medal at both the 1999 and 2003 Pan American Games. 
At the young age of 31, Kim Rhode has won just about every award and honor that you can earn in the sport of shooting and in the outdoors industries. She is a five-time winner of USA Shooting's "FEMALE SHOOTER OF THE YEAR" and a five-time winner of USA Shooting's "FEMALE SHOTGUN SHOOTER OF THE YEAR". In addition, Kim has received the United States Olympic Committee's "SHOOTER OF THE YEAR" award and CHEVY TRUCKS' "SHOOTER OF THE YEAR" awards. She also received the "DISTINGUISHED SHOOTER MEDAL" from the U.S. Army in 1995 and the coveted shooting industry's "ACADEMY OF EXCELLENCE" award in 1997. Kim was named one of 20 initial Olympian honorees for the "Olympian Heroes" series. TIME Magazine named her as one of the "Top Ten Sports Phenoms" of 1996 following herdramatic gold-medal-winning performance at the Centennial Olympic Games in Atlanta. 

Just a few of Kim Rhode's latest accomplishments include: 

  • International spokesperson for SHE Safari apparel, which features her own line of shooting apparel.
  • Spokesperson for Otis Technology, Inc. manufacture of the world's Finest Gun Cleaning System.
  • Continuing her long-term association with Perazzi, maker of the finest shotguns in the world.
  • Working as the featured national media spokesperson for "Kids and Clays," a national charity that raises funds and awareness for Ronald McDonald Houses.
  • Has been longtime national spokesperson for the NSSF's "Scholastic Clay Target" youth shooting programs.
  • Kim is again endorsing Randolph Engineering's "Ranger" Shooting Glasses.
  • Kim proudly shoots Winchester Ammunition.

Kim was a spokesperson for the Outdoor Channel for four years, and hosted the weekly television show "Step Outside". Kim served for two years as the featured national spokesperson for the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service's national television and radio public service campaigns. Kim was the sole woman selected and the first of 25 "most influential" essayists featured by Petersen's Hunting to commemorate their 25th anniversary issue. She has appeared at scores of events that have assisted vital local, regional and national organizations in the outdoors industries and on behalf of numerous charities. Kim's accomplishments have received millions of impressions in print and electronic media but her favorite appearance was The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in 1996 right before her first Olympic Games. "I was only 16 at the time and all of my friends stayed up just to watch me. After I won my gold medal, Jay Leno sent me a dozen roses to celebrate!"

Kim seems to thrive on her busy schedule and is able to balance all of the requirements of international competitions, her extensive practice time, numerous public appearances and media commitments on behalf of her sponsors and her sport. In her free time, she enjoys restoring classic vehicles and restoring and furnishing her Craftsman home. She also collects first edition children's books, her favor being Raggedy Ann and The Wizard of OZ.
