USA Shooting: Kim Rhodes Aims For Olympic History

It isn't often that people think about shooting in the Olympics. But this year, there is quite a bit of history riding on one of the members of the U.S. Olympic Shooting Team. Kim Rhode could become the first American in history to get individual medals in five straight Olympic Games.

Rhodes owns four medals to her name, winning gold medals in 1996 and 2004 in the Double Trap event, a silver medal in 2008 in the Skeet, and a bronze medal in 2000 in the Double Trap. She is the youngest female gold medalist in the history of Olympic shooting when she won in 2000.

On July 29, most of the west coast will wake up to find out whether or not Rhodes has made history. She should complete her event by 7 a.m. PST.
