Olympic Snowboarding Gold Medalist
Chloe Kim is a 17-year-old American snowboarding prodigy who recently took home Gold for the U.S. in the women’s snowboard halfpipe at the 2018 Winter Olympics, making her the youngest woman to win an Olympic snowboarding medal.
Chloe is also a four-time X Games gold medalist in the Superpipe, the first X Games athlete to win two golds before the age of 16, and the first woman to win two gold medals in snowboarding at the Winter Youth Olympic Games.
Chloe’s first tracks on a snowboard were at the age of four and she began competing when she was six. She qualified to make the 2014 Olympic Halfpipe team, but due to her age and IOC rules, was unable to compete.
2013-14 was Chloe’s breakout season. The year began with a Bronze medal at the Dew Tour and continued with Chloe grabbing Silver at the Winter X Games. She finished the season with another Silver at the Burton US Open—all at the age of 13.
Chloe made history during the 2014-15 season when she became the youngest competitor (at 14 years old) to win a Winter X Games Gold medal.
During the 2015-16 season, Chloe won six Gold and two Silver medals. Her season highlights included defending her X Games Gold medal and becoming the first X Games athlete to win two Golds before the age of 16. She continued to break new ground in women’s snowboarding, when she became the first woman to land back-to-back 1080 spins and score a perfect 100 at the U.S. Snowboarding Grand Prix that year.
Chloe’s 2016-17 season started off by winning Gold medals at the Copper Grand Prix and LAAX Open, pushing her consecutive event win streak to eight. She went on to win Bronze at the X Games and the first World Cup Crystal Globe of her career. Chloe finished the season defending her Gold medal at the Burton US Open, cementing her status as the top female halfpipe rider in the world heading into the 2018 Olympics.
Chloe has had just as much success off of the mountain as she has had on it, being featured on Forbes 30 under 30 list in 2017, TIME’s 30 Most Influential Teens of 2016 and 2017, and espnW’s 2015 IMPACT25 list. In addition, Chloe has been nominated for an ESPY, Kids Choice Sports Award, and two Laureus World Sports Awards.
Chloe, whose parents emigrated from Korea, now lives in Los Angeles with her family.
