Exclusive interview with United States' Kimberly Rhode

The six-time Olympic medalist climbed on the women's Skeet podium for five straight international competitions, from the Rio 2016 Bronze to the three World Cup medals secured this year. "I think I have a few more in me..." she said in an exclusive interview with the ISSF.

United States' Kimberly Rhode turned 38 yesterday, only a couple of days after pocketing her 14th participation to the ISSF World Championship Shotgun, taking place in Moscow (RUS) from August 30th to September 11th.

 

There, she will compete for what would be her sixth consecutive podium in an international competition, after the Bronze secured at the Rio 2016, the ISSF World Cup Final title and the three medals pocketed out of three World Cup stages in 2017.

 

In Larnaka, the legendary Skeet shooter took some time to sit down with the ISSF, addressing her outstanding streak of results, what keeps her motivated after so many years in the circuit, and the possibility of the Olympic Games coming to her hometown Los Angeles (USA).

 

The 2017 ISSF season will resume in mid August, when the ISSF Junior World Cup Shotgun is taking place from the 15th to the 22nd, and it will conclude in late October with the ISSF World Cup Final, scheduled in New Delhi (IND) from the 23rd to the 30th.
