(Olympics) Snowboard sensation Chloe Kim makes successful Winter Games debut
15 February, 2018, 15:54
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 Olympicgold 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's parents are originally from Seoul, and she said she has been reconnecting with relatives here in Pyeongchang.
