Snowboarder Chloe Kim wins gold for USA

Kjetil Jansrud will be hard to topple in the Super G

Chloe Kim took the 2018 Olympics by storm on Monday, February 12, when she won gold in the women's halfpipe event - but she's not the only one in the Kim clan that's making headlines.

"I hate crying but I'll give myself a pass for this one", Kim tweeted.

She blew away the competition with a first run score of 93.75, clinching gold before her final round.

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. It turns out she could have slid down the halfpipe on her butt in her next two runs and still won gold.

It was her Korean-born father who, after emigrating to Los Angeles, quit his job as an engineer when she was 8 to help her quench that passion. Later, with the gold medal already locked up, she threw down back-to-back 1080s, becoming the first woman to do so in the Olympics and scoring a almost ideal 98.25. "She's going to be something special", said Bland. Among the family in attendance were Chloe's grandmother and several extended family members who had never seen her snowboard prior to the event. The selection on Kim's plate looks more like a typical ham and cheese, which clearly belongs in the standard, or lunch, sandwich category.

Here's what she did on that epic run: Method; Front 10; Cab 10; Front 9; McTwist; Crippler 7 - that's according to the list she reeled off at a news conference afterward.

On February 14, CL uploaded a screenshot of an Olympics fan's Instagram post about Chloe Kim's gold medal win and congratulated her on her awesome feat. When she dropped in to take her third and final run, the last rider to drop in the contest, she knew the gold was hers.

Lawmakers rain on Trump's idea for military parade through Washington
But there has been little enthusiam from either Republicans or Democrats for what would be a costly parade. He was wowed last summer by a French military parade in Paris marking Bastille Day.

"It's the best outcome I could have asked for, it's been such a long journey".

And like any father of a teenager, Kim said he wants Chloe to be more friendly to him.

Kim also reflected on the values she learned from her parents.

Even Olympians can trip, as we saw in the bronze-medal game between the Russians and Norway in mixed doubles curling. The previous record was held by Sweden's Carl Goran Oberg, who scored two goals in eight seconds at the 1960 Winter Games. "I'm happy to have done that with the support of all my family members".

Liu denied the Americans a podium sweep with her 89.75-point second run. But halfpipes are hard, the snow is slippery and nothing is for sure. Jiayu went after Chloe by throwing down an epic run right up until the final hit - a 1080 which she failed to land.

All the same, it seems like she'll keep winning.

But Kim, whether it's fair or not, has come to represent more than that for these Olympics.
