Chloe Kim, US Olympics Snowboarder, Tweets For Ice Cream During Competition

In 2014, Chloe Kim was relegated to a footnote in the Olympic history books.

In the meantime, somebody get Kim some ice cream!

We could not mention the present of snowboarding without mentioning the legend that is Kelly Clark.

Her father would make the long, early-morning drive to Mammoth each day, with Kim asleep in the backseat.

So she went back to work on the halfpipe, perfecting her high-flying tricks, and back to being a normal teenage girl - however hard that would soon become, as the hype surrounding her grew louder with each day that passed closer to 2018 and Pyeongchang.

"I want everything to look good and ideal 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. "So I think I'll be a little more prepared for things". "You want to walk away having put down your best runs when it counts, and today I was unable to do that".

Amitabh Bachchan's sarcastic response to paps after hospital visit
Amitabh Bachchan is mostly busy in late-night shoots and recording sessions, that could be a reason for his deteriorating health. Bachchan and Kapoor are seen in an entirely new avatar and the chemistry they share is out there for the world to see.


Kim is still the only one to land them back-to-back - Clark is the only other rider to even try - and did that in her run to win X Games last month. No matter, she's moving on, along with all of her teammates. She scored a 91.5 in her first qualifying run and a 95.5 in her second run, the two best scores as of writing.

"I'm always more nervous in qualies", Kim said. "All kids just want to be a normal teenager and that's what she seems like to me". The pipe has been so good.

"I'm very thankful for him", Kim said. "But I'm actually really glad he did that".

Indeed. I've never come across a churro that wasn't bomb. Ideal ice cream weather. She was forlorn after her final run, sitting in ninth place with half the field still left to go and expecting the worst. Clark won a gold at the 2002 Olympics in Salt Lake City and has won bronze in Vancouver and Sochii. "I loved it more and more every year, and it was just a really exciting process for me". But it just didn't go how I wanted it to go.

"Just focus on the riding trick by trick, that's what you need to do to land runs".
