Just in case anyone is curious, Kim will indeed be shooting in the trap event as well, but she is not the Olympic team selectee for the event. The way it works is that if a competitor is already there as an Olympic team member in a shooting event *and* they have shot a minimum qualification score (MQS) in a eligible World Cup event (or Pan-Am games, etc.), they can shoot in that event as well.
This isn't to take away from Kim's accomplishments. Just the fact that she has an MQS on file for trap (not an easy feat at all) and is qualified to also shoot the trap is pretty spectacular.
Back in the early 00s, I shot in a few International skeet events with Kim. She always seemed very nice and consistently finished among the top women. This was while her main sport was double trap, not skeet. The fact that she transitioned from being one of the best to the very best in skeet shortly after the women's double trap event ceased to be in 2004 is amazing as well.
I was lucky and got to meet Kim at the Shot Show in Las Vegas two years ago. She had her Olympic medals with her and was putting them away for safe keeping when I walked up and started talking to her.
I asked her if those were all of the Olympic medals she had won and she said yes, do you want to look at them? She was actually handing them to me as she asked me the question. I thought that was very cool of her to just had me those Olympic medals like that.
Kim is a very nice young lady and a great shotgun shooter.
