The Christian Science Monitor asks, with exasperation, whether we can now remember Kim Rhode. Considering that she’s won 5 medals in 5 Olympics.
Sporting News notes that she has outdone Mark Spitz, Wilma Rudolph, and other Olympic greats. The only people ever doing this before were a Japanese judo champ and a couple of German luge guys.
Her name is pronounced “Rhodey.” Rhymes with “Annie Oakley.”
Other than a gun donated by fellow shooters after hers was stolen, she and her husband (Mark Harryman — she kept her maiden name for competition) fund her Olympics training all by themselves.
