London, England –-(Ammoland.com)- Otis Technology is proud to sponsor Olympic skeet shooter, Kim Rhode. On Sunday, July 29th, Kim captured the gold medal in skeet shooting at the 2012 London Olympics.

She broke an impressive 99/100 clays. Not only did Rhode win the gold, but she tied the world record, broke the Olympic record of 93/100, (held by her and two others) and made Olympic history by becoming the first American in an individual sport to win a medal in five consecutive Olympics.

Rhode’s Olympic debut was back in 1996 in Atlanta, starting off her Olympic career with a gold. She also became the youngest female gold medalist in the history of Olympic shooting. In Sydney 2000 she took home a bronze followed by a gold in Athens 2004 and a silver in Beijing 2008.

This huge win by Kim is the springboard this industry needs to increase involvement in shooting sports” remarks Len Nelson, VP of Sales & Marketing for Otis.
