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.

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

Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.
Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.
However, we still face many trials and tribulations in our industry, from figuring out the most sustainable business model for independent media companies to facing the current COVID-19 pandemic decimating advertising revenues across the board.
We hope you consider making a contribution so we can continue to provide you with quality content that informs, educates and inspires the Asian community.
Even a $1 contribution goes a long way. Thank you for everyone’s support. We love you all and can’t appreciate you guys enough.
