Losing your passport can be stressful. Now imagine losing your passport and not being able to make it to the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. US shooter Kim Rhode has here US passport, but she wasn’t able to fly with her team to Olympic training camp. Her puppy ate her airline ticket. After the ticket was reissued, Rhode found out that her husband couldn’t make the trip to the Summer Games. He lost his passport.
Rhode is attempting to become the first American to win individual medals in 5 Summer Olympics in a row. Think about it, that’s medals in a twenty year span!
Since Rhode was unable to travel with the team, she practiced at home with support from her husband who couldn’t find his US passport.
Her four month old puppy ate her airline ticket and was not considered a suspect in the case of the husband’s missing passport. Eventually, the missing passport was found and the ticket was reprinted.
Rhode will be partaking in the women’s trap and the skeet event at the Olympics and her husband will be there to support her (with his passport).
With so many athletes and their families coming from so many countries from all over the world, it is not surprising that passport issues can arise. Considering just how many people with passports are traveling to the 2012 Olympics in London, the cases of lost passports and passport problems are relatively low.
