Team Beretta shooter Kimberly Rhode recently won her fourth consecutive ISSF World Cup gold medal in Changwon, Korea.

Rhode, a six-time Olympic medalist, claimed the 21st World Cup gold medal of her prestigious career with this exceptional performance. She has now become the first female shooter and the first shotgun competitor, male or female, to win four consecutive World Cups in ISSF history.

Since her record sixth straight Olympic medal at the 2016 Rio Olympics, Rhode has earned 11 international medals, nine of which were gold.

Rhode, who shoots with a standard Beretta DT11, began the competition with a remarkable qualification round and she entered the final round in second place with a score of 122 out of 125 targets, only one target behind Italy’s Diana Bacosi.

After a dominating final round, Rhode topped the podium with an excellent score of 57 out of 60 targets, besting the runner-up by three targets.

Team Beretta swept the podium for the women’s event with Rhode’s international teammates Bacosi and Chiara Cainero winning the silver and bronze medals, respectively. Both Bacosi and Cainero also shoot Beretta DT11 shotguns.

Team Beretta shooters will continue their season at the upcoming 2019 U.S. Open at M&M Hunting Preserve in Pennsville, NJ from May 12-19.
