Kim makes Olympic history with gold medal win

One U.S. snowboarder made Olympic history with her recent gold medal win.

According to E! Online, Team USA snowboarder Chloe Kim earned a score just shy of perfection (98.25) in the women’s halfpipe competition, securing for herself and the U.S. a gold medal victory.

But in the process, Kim made history, becoming the youngest woman ever to medal in snowboarding — at the age of 17.

“I worked so hard to get to this point and just coming here and being able to land was my main goal,” Chloe said, according to E!. “I was so happy I could do it and take home the gold…My family has sacrificed so much for me and accomplish this dream of mine. Being able to do that in their home country is amazing.”

Now that’s a champion!
