Four years ago, 13-year-old Chloe Kim qualified for the 2014 Sochi Olympics in the halfpipe event. Unfortunately, she was too young to compete at the time.
In 2016, she became the first woman to land back-to-back 1080s at the U.S. Grand Prix in 2016.
This year, at 17, Kim was finally old enough to compete at the Olympics, gaining fans with her adorable tweets about churros and ice cream.
Today, Kim is the proud owner of her first Olympic Gold Medal.
