You may have never heard of her, but Kimberly Rhode, 32, has a chance to become one of the most decorated U.S. Olympians of all time. If the shooter places on the podium in London, she’ll become the first American athlete to medal in an individual sport in five straight Olympic Games. Rhode won her first gold in 1996, a week after turning 17. She won a bronze in Sydney, another gold in Athens and a silver in Beijing. As a young girl, Rhode developed her shooting skills while on African safari trips with her family. She also credits video games with keeping her sharp by improving her hand-eye coordination.
