Winter Olympics 2018: Tweeting the solution to Kim's 'theme park' boredom

Jiayu Liu of China won the silver with three strong runs, scoring a best of 89.75 on her second.

"All the people expected me to win a gold medal, especially in Austria, my home country, where skiing is big", he said."Everyone is saying, "Nice career, but an Olympic gold medal is still missing". Kim chatted about her win over some of her favorite foods after she tweeted in between runs during the final that her stomach was growling after she hadn't finished her breakfast.

Snowboarding - Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympics - Women's Halfpipe Finals - Phoenix Snow Park - Pyeongchang, South Korea - February 13, 2018 - Chloe Kim of the USA competes. Kim's grandmother, who lives in Seoul and had never seen her perform, traveled to Pyeongchang to watch Kim's gold medal-winning performance.

The journey to arrive at the Olympics has been a family affair, and Kim's American and Korean families weren't about to miss her debut. Just being in the classroom with her and hearing all her stories snowboarding and hearing her dad saying she's going to be in the Olympics one day, having it play out and seeing all the stuff that she's done, it's wonderful.

Kim did not disappoint as she made history, becoming the youngest gold medalist in Olympic snowboarding history at the age of 17. Her second-best score would have taken the gold and the only one that could beat that score was Chloe.

"I'm super happy because now this stupid question has gone away, if I'm thinking that my career is flawless without a gold medal", Hirscher said. The youngest athlete now registered for the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics is Wu Meng, a 15 year-old Chinese halfpipe skier.


"There is definitely a lot happening and I did feel a little overwhelmed but I am trying to take in the whole experience". "Thank you everyone for the love!". Kelly Clark landed all three of her runs, each better than the previous, and was competing through pain.

Tuesday was a great day in the halfpipe at the Pyeongchang Games: Chloe Kim fulfilled her Olympic destiny while hangry, while Shaun White reminded the world he's still the greatest. Giving up his job, being away from my mom, and being away from home for that much just because of me? Now, Kim will turn to another American tradition: The intense media and appearances tour that will turn her from a snowboarding star into a national icon.

Kim told reporters that her win in Pyeongchang was special for her family, who have done so much "to help me accomplish this dream of mine".

He did not cry according to Chloe, which had surprised her. "I can one up myself'". "This is just what I've imagined". Back in 2014, she couldn't go to Sochi because she was too young.

And by Tuesday afternoon, she agreed: "Yes".
