RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) - American shooter Kim Rhode won the bronze medal in women's skeet shooting on Friday, an honor that puts her in an elite record-holding group of just five other Olympic athletes who have won a medal in six different Olympic Games.

The 37-year-old from California and three-time gold medalist also becomes the first sportswoman in history to win medals in six consecutive Olympic Games.
