Near perfect, U.S. shooter Rhode makes it five in a row (video).

We interrupt the usual Olympic infatuation with swimming and gymnastics for an historic message from the shooting venue. Never underestimate what a motivated woman can do.

History for Kim Rhode came Sunday with a perfect score in the final round of the skeet shooting competition, a fist pump to the crowd and a hug for her father. Then it was time to stand on the podium for an individual medal in the fifth consecutive Olympics, and if anyone is wondering the last time an American athlete has done that, the answer is easy. Never.

Not a lot of U.S. media were here for the big event, but this ain’t the swimming pool. Plus, the men’s basketball team was thrashing France somewhere else, and how does Kim Rhode compete with LeBron James – even if she shoots like Annie Oakley?
