Chloe Kim Tweets About Being Hangry, Then Wins Her First Olympic Gold Medal



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.

On her first run of the day, she racked up a score 93.75, immediately bringing her into first place. None of the other competitors were able to catch up to her after that. By her third run, she even managed to beat out her her initial score with a 98.25 while landing back-to-back 1080s.

What’s more impressive is that Kim even found time to tweet about being hangry literally in the middle of competition.

Congrats Chloe Kim! Your father must be extremely proud!

Journalist Sung Min Kim, based in South Korea, also gave us an important reminder about Chloe’s incredible achievement:
