Congratulations to your Olympic Medal Winners, but please spare a thought (as I am sure that they do) to the UK’s Amber Hill who after 5 years of training had to withdraw at the last minute when she tested positive for COVID-19.

I believe trap was dropped back around 2000.

What a disappointment for Amber Hill. Sorry.

Causes me to remember Kim Rhode at the last games. She became the only Olympian to ever individually medal at 6 summer games and NBC apparentedly couldn’t bring themselves to feature her (I assume because she was a shooter.)

That was when they separated Men's and Women's Trap. Trap was shot at Sydney in 2000, at Athens in 2004, at Beijing in 2008, at London in 2012 and at Rio in 2016. Only U.S. medals were Cory Cogdell with Bronze in 2008 and 2016.

The great Kim Rhode never got any airtime.
Amber English won’t , either.

They had a primetime interview with her last night, along with Hancock, they even included some clips of her shooting. My wife is an avid Olympics fan and records everything so she can watch deleting all the commercials and calls me in to see stuff she thinks might interest me, she just backs it up so I can see the whole segment. My wife was a collegiate(UCO) small bore shooter and competitive roller skater. We've been married 31 years and when the Olympics' are on every thing come to a halt here.

We don't have the Olympic channel here in our new home but we even got to watch the skeet comp. I used to shoot international skeet before my eyes went.
