A California native, she is a five-time Olympic medal winner including three gold medals and six-time national champion in double trap. Kim is the only U.S. Olympian in history to compete in five consecutive Olympic Games and win a medal in each.
She is the most successful female shooter at the Olympics as the only triple Olympic Champion and is the only woman to have won two Olympic gold medals for Double Trap. Most recently, she won a gold medal in skeet shooting at the 2012 Summer Olympic Games, equaling the world record of 99 out of 100 clays.
Born in Whittier, California,Rhode began sport hunting at an early age, traveling on African safaris by the age of 12.
At 13, she won her first world championship title in women's double trap shooting. Rhode won a gold medal at the 1996 Summer Games, making her the youngest female gold medalist in the history of Olympic shooting.
She later won a bronze medal at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia. Rhode also won a gold medal at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens.
After double trap shooting was eliminated from the Olympic games, she has concentrated on skeet. At the 2007 world cup competitions in Santo Domingo, she set a new final world record in this event with 98 hits (74 in the qualification round and a perfect 25 in the final). She went on to win the silver medal at the 2008 Summer Olympics in women's skeet.
Rhode is co-host of the Outdoor Channel's TV program Step Outside. Rhode studied veterinary medicine at Cal Poly Pomona.
On September 11, 2008, Rhode's competition shotgun was stolen from her pickup; she had been using it in competition for eighteen years.
The gun was returned to her in January 2009 after it was discovered during an unrelated search of a parolee's home; the parolee was charged with possession of stolen property.
In the meantime fans had donated to buy her a new $13,000 Perazzi shotgun. Having become used to training with the new gun, she elected to retire "Old Faithful" after four Summer Games.
On July 29 at the 2012 London Olympics, Rhode won the gold medal in skeet shooting with an Olympic record score of 99, tying the world record in this event.
