Kim Rhode is not a name that everyone might know, which is why we thought we might get to know her a bit better. She’s someone who might be able to make a bigger name for herself now that she’s about to go into the sixth Olympic games of her own life, but she’s not someone who is going to worry about her fame. She’s a shooter. She’s a double trap shooter and a skeet shooter, and she makes it her business to go out and win Olympic games and make a name for herself. She’s one of the most famous women in her sport, and she’s going to become even more famous during the upcoming Olympic Games. For that reason, you might want to know more about her.
As she prepares for her sixth Olympic games, the world is watching. She is one of the most talented women in the game – if not the most talented. The world has high expectations from her based on her previous appearances, and we know she’s not about to disappoint the world or her fans.
She doesn’t miss
In the 2012 Olympic games, Kim Rhode was more than just a little bit amazing doing what she does. She was able to hit 99 out of the 100 clays that were launched for her to shoot. That’s more than substantial. She’s one away from perfection, and that is why she’s taken home the gold. She’s not someone who takes the sport lightly, even though it is something she really enjoys. She’s good at it, and she works very hard at the sport to ensure she remains good at it.
She’s a world record breaker
Those same 99 clays are a world record in the Olympics and in the game of shooting in general. No one else has ever been able to hit that many at a time, and that has made Kim Rhode more famous than anyone to ever take part in the sport. There is no one in the world who can do what she does, which is why she’s so famous and such a celebrity in this world. The country will only talk more and more about her as the Olympic games approach. They are proud of their local skeet shooting hero, and it’s nice to have something so positive to focus on in a world where so many other things are so sad and so unworthy of our focus.
She’s a California girl
Most people are a bit surprised to learn that Kim Rhode is a born and raised California girl. She’s from a southern California town by the name of Whittier. She does not quite fit the mold of your traditional SoCal girl. Most people assume she’s from the south with that shooting skill of hers.
She’s been shooting her entire life
When she was just a little girl Kim Rhode showed great potential for shooting. She was able to take advantage of that, too. Her parents loved that she had the skill and they were very happy to take her places to work on it. In fact, she was on African Safaris practicing her shooting skills before she was even out of elementary school. She’s just that good at what she does.
She’s a television host
Did you know that Kim Rhode is not just a famous face in the shooting world? She’s also a famous face on television. She hosts a show on the Outdoor Channel called “Step Outside,” where she takes her fans on a wonderful adventure that is personal to her. She really does enjoy the job and she’s not afraid to take it and go outside her comfort zone when she feels the opportunity is there for her.
She went to college
She knew from an early age that she wanted to compete in shooting on a professional level, but Kim Rhode also had a few other hopes and dreams growing up. She actually went to college to become something that many young girls and boys dream of becoming. She enrolled in classes fat Cal Poly Pomona and she student veterinary medicine.
She loves animals
She might be a shooter, but Kim Rhode really does love animals. She wanted to become a vet and even attended college for it when she was growing up. She gave up her dream to go to the Olympics and she really did make a good choice. She’s good at what she does, and she can love animals from anywhere in the world.
Most people will probably assume this based on her choice sport and her lifestyle. However, Kim Rhode is anything but a snob as many people like to classify us Republicans. She’s been an integral part of the Republican National Convention back in 2012, and she’s a staunch believer in the fact that politics should be run a certain way.
She’s a married lady
She doesn’t speak much about her private life in public. In fact, Kim Rhode is not much a fan of the spotlight as it happens. She’s famous, and she knows it. That does not mean, however, that you will see her making any red carpet appearances or doing anything of that nature when she’s not working. She doesn’t speak much about her family in public, but she is married. She’s been married to Mike Harryman since 2009.
She’s a mom
Another thing you will not hear Kim Rhode discuss all that often is her son. She loves him and adores being a mother, but she does not want her son to grow up in the limelight as a famous child. He was born in 2013; so while he is still just a baby without any real idea of what his mother does and how famous she is, she plans on keeping it that way as long as possible. We assume she will also teach her little man how to shoot, since it is something she so enjoys.
