Jewish Snowboarder Arielle Gold Earns Olympic Bronze for US

Before she turned 16, she'd won three gold medals at the X Games; she qualified for the Sochi Olympics at 13 but decided not to go because of her age. She used churros to calm her nerves, but requested ice cream before her final run.

Such was the madness, minutes before Kim - the youngest female Olympic gold medalist on snow - stood tearfully atop the podium, her mother Boran was pleading to be let through a security check point. She went for her big and signature move - three spins off one wall of the pipe followed by three more on the other - and nailed it.

Instead, she made a decision to go out with a bang and pull back-to-back 1080 spins - a feat no other woman has ever landed in an official competition. She delivered back-to-back 1080s - a first for women in the Olympic Games - and drove her score even higher to a almost flawless 98.25. "On average, we plan for endorsement deal size for Olympic athletes to double their pre-medal potential once they win gold". Her way of giving it was the classic run she put down at the end. "And today, I really did it for my family and everything they've done for me". "I'm gonna talk on the phone with my friends and not eat my sandwich till later.' And then I never ended up finishing my sandwich", Kim said.

Chloe Kim is no doubt one of the breakout athletes from the Winter Olympics.

Chloe Kim's parents are originally from Seoul, and she said she has been reconnecting with relatives here in Pyeongchang.

To be clear, if real Chloe and hangry Chloe were two different people, like in those Snickers you're-not-you-when-you're-hungry commercials, they would have taken home both gold and silver, with hangry Chloe getting the top prize.

Two years ago, Kim became the first woman to land back-to-back 1080 tricks in competition. This was Clark's fifth Olympics, and the 34-year-old left the halfpipe with her own future to consider, but knowing the future of the sport she helped bring to the masses is in very good hands. "I'm happy to have done that with the support of all my family members".

Kim tweeted about her hankering for ice cream, and it was liked by nearly 21,000 people. But athletic ability and hardware aside, Kim is just about the most relatable Olympian out there. On her first trip down she listened to "Paparazzi" by Lady Gaga and scored a 93.75, ESPN reports.

"Everybody does hard work for their kid, but I thank my daughter because she achieved the result", he added.
