Kim Rhode to Appear on Commemorative Ammo Box

Shooting champ Kim Rhode is receiving a rare honor from Winchester Ammunition—her very own spot on a box of ammo.

8/22/2012

Kim Rhode cemented her place as one of the most successful Olympians of all time this summer, and Winchester Ammunition is honoring that success by featuring her on a commemorative box of the company's AA target loads.

Placement on a Winchester box is an extremely rare honor—only John Wayne, Teddy Roosevelt and Oliver F. Winchester have appeared on the company's products since the brand launched in 1866.

Rhode made history in 2012 by becoming the first United States athlete to medal in an individual sport in five consecutive Olympics. She took the women's skeet competition to win her third career shooting gold medal, becoming the first woman ever to achieve three shooting golds.

The limited edition Winchester AA boxes featuring Rhode will be standard, 25-round boxes of 2 3/4-inch, #8-shot target shells. Winchester will donate a portion of the proceeds generated by the Rhode boxes to USA Shooting.
