Kim Rhode on Winchester Ammunition Boxes

Kim Rhode cemented her place in history as one of the greatest Olympians of all time by winning the gold medal in Women’s Skeet Shooting at the London Games to become the first U.S. athlete to medal in an individual sport in five consecutive Olympics dating to 1996. Rhode’s longtime sponsor, Winchester Ammunition, is honoring her success by featuring Rhode on a commemorative box of AA target loads.

Rhode now takes her place among iconic Americans John Wayne, Teddy Roosevelt and Oliver F. Winchester as the lone individuals to be featured on Winchester Ammunition boxes, an impressive achievement considering the Winchester brand dates back to 1866.
