There are about 13,000 Olympians, both summer and winter, during each four-year cycle. Since 1896, when the modern Games began, there have been 184,869 Olympians. So we’re talking about something that happens .001 percent of the time, which is just one click above…never!
Who did it? Kimberly Rhode, U.S. Olympic medalist FOR THE LAST SIX CONSECUTIVE OLYMPICS! [2016,2012, 2008,2004,2000,1996]
Rhode, a 37-year-old woman, was: fighting injuries; struggling against decades of sexism in her sport’s Olympic organization; had to train by herself while raising a 3-year-old son; and had to learn a whole new sport halfway through her medal run because the Olympics decided only men could compete in her preferred event.
Plus, she had to re-qualify each time for one of only two American slots in a sport where a single mistake can mean the difference between winning and fifth place, and then she had to earn her medals in the most competitive sport in the world—more nations compete in her event than in any other sport.
But, nobody in the media says a word about this heroic woman. What makes her untouchable to the press?
The unique thing about Kimberly Rhode is that she carries a shotgun. To be precise, a custom-made Beretta DT11, which is the second gun she’s competed with ever since “Old Faithful,” the competition Perazzi she used for 18 years, was stolen by crackheads who broke into a locked compartment of her pickup while she was inside a shopping center in 2008.
Medals in six consecutive Olympic competitions and she gets ZERO notice from NBC in their coverage of the entire 2016 Summer Olympics! Not enough human interest? Not enough personal dedication? Not enough unique accomplishment? Only NBC can explain why Kimberly has gone quietly home from Rio, without accolade, recognition, or celebration.
Just how vehemently is the Liberal Press opposed to firearms in the hands of common people?[Thanks to Joe Bob Briggs for this material].
