On Friday, the 2018 Winter Olympics officially launched in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Hundreds of the best athletes from around the world are competing for the coveted gold medal, and thousands of fans are watching in anticipation.
On Monday, the United States added another gold medal to their count. 17-year-old snowboard prodigy, Chloe Kim, won the women’s halfpipe.
Kim made her debut in the Olympics with an outstanding score, beating all of her competitors by over 8 points. Her highest score was a 98.25, a nearly perfect score.
After her win, the Internet swooned over Kim. The 17-year-old kept it real on her Twitter account, talking about how hungry she was.
The Internet was also swooning over Kim’s adorable father. He was seen in the audience at the halfpipe competition holding a homemade sign.
The laminated poster said, “Go Chloe!” with a pink heart on it. After the Internet saw the photo of Kim’s father, they couldn’t get enough. Below are some of the Tweets:
Reportedly, Chloe Kim’s father played a significant role in her achieving her athletic dreams. He was the one who taught her to snowboard at only 4 years old, and he quit his job as an engineer in order to support her more fully.
Congrats to Chloe Kim on her Olympic gold, and congrats to her father for winning over the hearts of the viewers! What do you think about this? Let us know! In other recent news, authorities just revealed the suspicious substance that sent some of Trump's family to the hospital.
