Another HERstory making event at the Winter Olympics.
On Tuesday in South Korea, 17-year-old Chloe Kim walked away the gold medalist in the women’s halfpipe event at the PyeongChang games. Not only did this win give the U.S. its THIRD gold medal of the Olympics, but the victory also made the teenage snowboarding phenom the youngest female medalist in Olympic snowboarding history.
Color us impressed!! Be sure to ch-ch-check out her history making run for yourself (below) AND see her reaction to winning gold (also below).
Wow. Just, wow. What’s even more AH-Mazing is that the Olympian made her gold medal winning halfpipe run while hangry AF. She admitted on Twitter:
Wish I finished my breakfast sandwich but my stubborn self decided not to and now I’m getting hangry

HIGHlarious! Understandably, Kim was emotional following her big win and even joked about it online:
LOVES it. And celebs on the internet certainly love Kim too, as many commented:
Well deserved tears. Huge congrats Legend.
