    Rhode, 33, became the first American athlete to win an individual medal in five straight Olympics, winning gold and setting an Olympic record for the highest score in the Olympic Finals with a 99-out-of-100. The previous mark was 93.

    Rhode's performance was so dominant, she had the gold clinched well before the final round of shooting, which led to some emotions during the event.

    Rhode also set an Olympic record in the preliminary round, hitting 74 of 75 targets.

    She won gold in double trap shooting in 1996 and 2004, and bronze in the event in 2000. That sport was dropped for the 2008 Beijing Games, so Rhode moved over to skeet shooting. She captured silver in 2008.

    Rhode won this event using a different competition shotgun than she had used in previous Olympics. That weapon was stolen in September 2008 and was eventually returned to her the following January. But Rhode had already grown comfortable on the new gun, and used it in London.

    Her lone miss came at station five, low single house during preliminaries, which were held during a rain storm in London.

    Rhode indicated that she plans on continuing her streak at the 2016 Rio Games -- and beyond.

    "The oldest shooter to win a medal in the Olympics was 72," she said. "I still have a few more in me."

    And no reason she can't keep on going. Shooting has the potential to set a record here NO other sport will ever be able to match. I'm rooting for her!


    I strongly suspect Kim Rhode's most fearful threat won't be on the shooting field. It will be from the pu$$ies in the IOC eliminating her sport, again.
