Dreaming Big


Oakley’s Chiara Cainero of Italy dared to dream big and finally realized her dream of winning the gold medal in the Women’s Skeet at the Beijing Summer Games. After being tied on 93 hits with US’ Kimberly Rhode and Germany’s Christine Brinker in the finals, Cainero emerged victorious from the jumble, in her white Radar sunglasses.

In the final, the three shooters were tied after the 21st shot then Cainero missed the target and offered the other two shooters a prospect to get closer. All of the three champions hit their final four targets to force a shoot-off.

Both Brinker and Rhode failed to hit their second shoot-off target, thus the gold went to Cainero who hit both the targets successfully.
