    Two days ago 2004 Olympic Gold Medalist Kim Rhode set a new Final World Record of 98/100 in Olympic Ladies Skeet. Having taken two years off and only practicing for a few months she shot 25/23/25/25 to make history.

    Kim is making another bid for the Olympic team for the 2008 Bejing Games. After the 2004 Games Kim's event of Ladies Double Trap was removed from the contest.

    Congrats Kim!!!

    Hello, he meant 98. You would think nobody ever made an obvious typo before.

    they take away womens doubles trap, and now she finds something new to dominate!!


    BTW, dunno about the taking 2 years off and practicing for a few months part. makes the story alot more interesting, but last I heard from one of the Briley guys (last september) she was shooting 500 rounds of practice w/ the .410 and possible 28ga per day with tubes they rigged up for her.

    She was an American Skeet shooter before she took up Trap. How do you think she learned to shoot? Jeff

    Skeet Man,

    You may very well be correct on the time but even so 7 months from not shooting to winning gold and setting a World Record is still an amazing accomplishment.

    Kim was at our range the other day and wireguy hit the nail on the head. The fact of the matter is that she works hard at her craft and knows how to win. Did you know that in the 2004 Olympics that she competed in Ladies Skeet and came in fourth? Think about that, two vastly different sports and taking a gold and a fourth.

    I believe a lady from China won the Olympic Gold in skeet with 200x200 Kim is a great shot and a nice young lady ..
