NRA offers its sincere congratulations to shotgunner Kimberly Rhode, who, on July 29, won a gold medal in women's skeet shooting, becoming the first American to win individual medals in five straight Olympics.

In her dominating win on Sunday, Rhode tied a world record with 99 points out of a possible 100. 

Rhode's Olympic journey began in 1996 at the Atlanta Summer Games, where she won in double trap.  She went on to medal in Sydney, Athens, Beijing, and, now, London.
