Teenage star Chloe Kim shines in halfpipe qualifying in PyeongChang

12 February 2018

In Pyeongchang, she's a heavy favorite to win gold with her extended family watching in the country her parents emigrated from.

"I feel like I have this different opportunity that not a lot of athletes may have", Kim said in an ESPN interview at last month's X Games.

This was Kim's first Winter Olympics as she wasn't able to compete at the Sochi Winter Games four years ago due to her young age, even though she was considered one of the top medal contenders in the halfpipe event.

Already the most decorated Olympic snowboarder of all time, she would become the oldest American to win a snowboarding medal if she can do so in this event. She snacks on "pretty bomb" churros, according to her February 11 tweet. You can really never go wrong with them. For that, she was off to get some ice cream. That meant falling each time they got off the chair lift, until at 6 years old Chloe asserted that she'd like to fall on her own.

"Women's snowboarding needed someone like Chloe", Wisner said, "who goes big and does big tricks to challenge Kelly".

Luckily, she found what she needed in the Olympic Village: churros. "It's because I want her to learn French". Because of that, she had a long, drawn-out wait.

"I want everything to look good and flawless even though it may not be insane progressive or new", Kim said, "but I do want it to look good so everyone feels happy when they watch", Kim said. Teenager Maddie Mastro was fourth and Arielle Gold grabbed the 12th and final spot.

Unsafe gusts that caused havoc in the women's slopestyle final and forced the postponement of the women's giant slalom periodically sent puffs of snow swirling across the top of the halfpipe run. "I've been really trying to clean up all the little details and I think I did that so I'm really excited".

"So I just broke it off", Kim told Sports Illustrated.

That love of snowboarding has been what's allowed her to progress, Kim said. "I'm thankful the conditions have been so wonderful".

They began to see the dividends in 2014.
