Kim Rhode made history in Rio, becoming the first American athlete—and first female athlete, from anywhere—to medal in six consecutive Olympic Games. Rhode's longtime supporter, Winchester, is celebrating the history-making achievement by once again featuring Rhode on boxes of AA target loads.
The standard AA loads, AA128, will be in the commemorative boxes and available at Winchester retailers.
“We are proud of our long-standing partnership with USA Shooting, and particularly Kim Rhode,” said Brett Flaugher, vice president of marketing, sales and strategy at Winchester Ammunition. “We offer a heartfelt congratulations to all the athletes who participated in this year’s games. Kim and her fellow teammates are a reflection of all that is great about sporting competition, what is best about America and what is best about the benefits of competitive target shooting.”
Winchester has long been connected to Rhode and the USA Shooting team, having served as the team's exclusive shotshell sponsor and supplier since 1999.
“We all owe a great deal of our success to Winchester and their AAs. They’ve helped us practice, train and compete with the confidence we need just knowing we’re shooting the best product out there,” said Kim Rhode. “We’re very proud to have the Winchester name behind our team and are very thankful to have those legendary AA shotshells in our shooting vests.
