Beijing Olympics: Chloe Kim Makes History With Gold Medal in Women’s Snowboard Halfpipe


Beijing: Chloe Kim secured the gold medal in the women’s halfpipe with her very first run at the Beijing Winter Olympics on Thursday—and made history in the process.

Kim’s score of 94.00 put her in the top spot at Genting Snow Park in Zhangjiakou. She remained there for the rest of the competition. That didn’t stop her from pushing even harder on her final two runs.

The 21-year-old’s win makes her the first woman to take back-to-back Olympic gold medals in the snowboard halfpipe.
