On Friday, American Olympic history was made when superstar skeet shooter Kim Rhode became the first American to medal in six consecutive Olympics.
The typical media coverage of stories involving a firearm obsesses over gun crime and includes giving gratuitous air time to anti-gun spokesmen like Moms Demand, idiot actors and politicians to sing their unchallenged propaganda.
But following Rhode’s historic win, a different news angle has surfaced: the unknown, rejected stars of the USA shooting team.
Landing a big-name sponsor might be the bigger feat. In the year leading up to Rio 2016, Rhode’s agent Patrick Quinn pitched her to around 20 companies that back the Olympics. None were convinced.
