  • [PyeongChang 2018] Snowboard sensation Chloe Kim makes dominant Winter Games debut

"I've been really trying to clean up all the little details and I think I just did that, so I'm really excited", she said".

The American, ranked first in the world coming into the Olympics, scored nearly eight points more than her nearest rival Jiayu Liu of China.

Kim Jong-jin, father of USA snowboarder Chloe Kim, speaks to reporters at Phoenix Snow Park in PyeongChang, some 180 kilometers east of Seoul, after watching his daughter's performance in the women's halfpipe event at the PyeongChang Winter Olympics on February 12, 2018. "It's kind of a insane coincidence".

Kim told People in the fall of her 2018 Olympic Games debut, "I'm shaking, my heart is pounding out of my chest, it's like I'm freaking out".

The Korean-American world number one stated her gold-medal winning potential with a solid 91.50 in her first run before posting the best score of the day in her second run.

Less than a week before the opening ceremony of her first Olympics, Kim was introduced to American sports fans by way of a commercial during the Super Bowl.

It was hit out or get out and with nearly nothing to lose, Klaasen and Miller indulged in batting that was very near maniacal. When India's captain and talisman, Kohli , was caught driving Chris Morris (1-60) on the up, India's luck began to run out.


"Could be down for some ice cream rn", the 17-year-old tweeted on Feb. 12 in PyeongChang (Feb. 11 in the U.S.).

"I've just been going insane honestly because I haven't been snowboarding yet and I've just been dying in my room", said Kim, who will be a hot favourite if she executes.

But for now, she's just soaking in her first Olympics.

If you had to imagine the diet of Olympic athletes, it probably would be an entirely too healthy concoction that I would have zero interest in.

"Coming to the Olympics was a big dream of mine since I was a baby so just being here now is unreal", said Kim, who superstitiously taps on her board before dropping in to "unjinx" herself. "But yesterday, I just couldn't get to sleep".
