Kim Rhode isn’t easily rattled.

She competed against adults at 13 to win her first world title in the shooting sport of American skeet. She won an Olympic gold medal in double trap at the 1996 Atlanta Games five days after her 17th birthday, the youngest female Olympic shooting champion in the Games’ history, and returned to win bronze in 2000 and gold again in 2004.
