She is a heavy favorite to win gold in the ladies’ halfpipe.
Despite all the pressure of Kim’s first Olympics, she simply wanted some ice cream in the middle of her first event.
There is a lot of pressure on American snowboarder Chloe Kim, who at 17 years old, is a heavy favorite to win gold in the ladies’ halfpipe, and is expected to be one of the next American Olympic stars.
But if you thought Kim might be a little nervous during her first Olympic event, guess again.
Kim ran the first of her two qualifying runs on Monday, scoring a 91.50, nearly four points better than any of the other competitors. Moments later, she showed just how cool of a competitor she really is, sending out a tweet in the middle of the competition simply saying she could go for some ice cream.

In the meantime, somebody get Kim some ice cream!
