Monrovia resident Kim Rhode set an Olympic record for Sunday by becoming the first American athlete to win an individual medal in five consecutive Olympic Games when she took home the gold in women's skeet shooting.
Rhode also tied a record in winning skeet by finishing with 99 points, according to the Associated Press. She also set an Olympic record in qualifying when she hit 74 of 75 targets, besting the previous record of 72, the New York Times reports.
A smiling Rhode pumped her fist in the air after shooting the final two targets. She wiped away tears when she took the podium to receive the gold medal.
