Professional shooter Kim Rhode has become the first woman to medal in six straight Olympics when she won bronze Friday in women’s skeet at the Rio games.

The 37-year-old started her Olympic journey at the Atlanta 1996 Olympic Games, where she won the gold in double trap to become the youngest female gold medalist in the history of Olympic shooting soon after turning 17 years old. She won a bronze in Sydney and then another gold in Athens.

At the end of the match, she told USA Today: “Being a mom, having a son here, it’s amazing. I hope that he remembers this. We’ve taken tons of pictures trying to capture the moment.”
