Kim Rhode has been competing in the skeet shoot and double trap shooting since she was 13 years old! She’s been competing in the Olympics for TWENTY years and, while in Rio this year, became the first U.S. Olympian to qualify for an Olympic team on FIVE different continents! What a sharp shooter!

 

These ladies prove age is just a number!
