The Kid Should See This

How Chloe Kim made the 2018 Olympic Halfpipe Snowboard Team

Chloe Kim‘s gold-winning women’s snowboard halfpipe performance at the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics, featuring her back-to-back 1080s, has made her a household name, but the 17-year-old has been putting in the practice for years. These Dew Tour promo videos share How Chloe Kim Made The PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Halfpipe Snowboard Team in 2017.

In 2014, 13-year old Chloe Kim qualified for a spot on the U.S. Olympic halfpipe team but wasn’t eligible to compete at the Sochi Olympics because she was too young. Now of age and able to compete at PyeongChang, she secured a spot on the U.S. team during the 2017 Breckenridge Dew Tour. Now, Kim prepares for her biggest endeavor yet. Although the additional attention adds pressure, Kim’s focus is to stay healthy and craft a perfect run for the Olympics. Watch her journey.
