Chloe Kim Takes Gold For US In Women's Snowboard Halfpipe

Canada have been the dominant force in men’s ice hockey

While TeamGB is still waiting for its first medal at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, America has a new hero. The blue line below shows her total followers, as shown on the left axis - and the right line shows the increase in 30 minutes increments, as noted on the right axis.

But the serious business of chasing a gold medal took an emotional toll.

Chloe Kim is pushing halfpipe snowboarding forward. He scored a 93.25 on his first run and ended with a 98.50 after an incredible second run, taking the lead as he heads into the finals. For artistic and athletic value, it carried historic weight, both a punctuation and invitation.

Kim Jong-jin, father of new Olympic champion snowboarder Chloe Kim, said Tuesday it was a dream come true when his daughter claimed the gold medal in the women's halfpipe at the PyeongChang Winter Olympics.

Kim has cleared all expectations on the board.

But after that Olympic necessity, Kim posted on Instagram how she felt. China's Liu Jiayu improved on her first run score pulling in a 89.75 and second place. "That situation, I did put down a really good first run, but I was like, 'I can do better than that. And I can't wait to go shopping with her".

Kim was born in the United States after her parents immigrated from Korea. "I think today I did it for my family and I am so grateful to them". "But just standing on top of the podium" was a special feeling, she added. Handlers whisked her to an interview.

"I'm super happy because now this stupid question has gone away, if I'm thinking that my career is ideal without a gold medal", Hirscher said. "I'm a little overwhelmed". While her win could be attributed to years of practice and a serious training schedule, it's also possible that her halfpipe playlist of choice may have provided the inspiration for a few of her moves. But she still found time to tweet about wanting ice cream. She pulled the same shtick between finals runs, telling the world she wished she had finished her breakfast sandwich, and she was now "hangry". "It just doesn't really work, but I'm glad I tried it".

Korean and American fans celebrated together as Kim laid down her spectacular array of tricks. Among the handful of relatives who live there is Chloe's grandma, who has been known to brag about her high-flying granddaughter if, say, she's out to tea with her friends and a picture of Chloe happens to appear in the newspaper, which happens fairly often. Not to quiet whatever doubters may remain in a sport where she's stamping herself as an all-time great as a teenager, but to herself. Gold medals are nice and all, but to the 17-year-old star, the journey is the point, not the destination.

"It was definitely a bittersweet position to be in when it was between me and Kelly for that bronze medal position", Gold said, noting that she looked up to Clark. As a result, she dedicated her final run to her.

Chloe Kim has revealed her secret to Olympic success.

And on an empty stomach, she delivered when it mattered most. Just-minted gold medalists are often asked a version of the same question: What would you tell people like yourself, but younger? "I am going to be hearing it for three more years: "remember when you talked about me in your press conference"?" "I think I was so fortunate to find my passion and the thing that brought me so much joy at such a young age". But she should for sure skip that song from now on, she fell trying to land back to back 1080s. It's pretty nerve-wracking. You know you're at the Olympics. "I hate crying but I'll give myself a pass for this one".
