Mammoth Athlete Chloe Kim won her first Olympic gold medal in the women’s halfpipe event at PyeongChang Monday night. 

In wake of Kim’s win we can’t tell which is brighter: her gold medal or the future of her snowboarding career…

While this is Kim’s first Olympic appearance, she’s no stranger to big comps. The now seventeen year old qualified for the Olympics back in 2014 when she was just thirteen, but was too young to compete.

Kim’s recent bad assery includes becoming the youngest American Winter X Games medalist ever, earning two X Games gold medals, and being the first female snowboarder to land two back to back 1080’s.

Well now Kim can add one more accolade to the mix, as her recent Olympic performance has made her the youngest woman ever to medal in snowboarding.

Kim’s final round in the halfpipe event was nearly perfect, totaling at 98.25! With two of her three rounds hitting above the 90 point mark, there’s no doubt that Kim was ready to throw down in PyeongChang.
