Chloe Kim

Chloe Kim is front-and-center in women’s snowboarding. As a 16 year old, first-generation Korean American, she was the youngest member of the U.S. Snowboard “Pro” team. She is a five-time X Games gold medalist and became the second woman to land a 1080. She also made history by becoming the first woman to land back-to-back 1080s in a halfpipe.

Kim earned her first X Games medal (silver) at age 13, is the only X Games athlete ever to win three gold medals before age 16 and is the first woman to win two gold medals in snowboarding at the Winter Youth Olympic Games. At age 17, she became the youngest woman to ever win gold at the Olympics Games in halfpipe, surpassing the past record holder, Kelly Clark, who was 18 years old. This record landed her a spot on TIME’s annual list of the world’s 100 most influential people of 2018.

From there, Kim was featured on a special edition cover of the Kellogg’s Corn Flakes cereal box, which set the record for “fastest-selling cereal box in Kellogg Company history.” She has also won four  ESPYs for Best Female Athlete (2018), Best U.S. Female Olympian (2018), and Best Female Action Sports Athlete (2018, 2019).

When she’s not competing, Kim enjoys shopping, hiking, skateboarding and playing guitar.
