Chloe Kim, Age 17, Wins USA Olympic Gold Medal

The 2018 Winter Olympics have come to an end.  Competitors from all over the world were in Pyeongchang, South Korea competing in a wide variety of winter sports.  There was an impressive number of young competitors and one of them was a 17-year-old girl from California.  Her name is Chloe Kim.  She started snowboarding at 4-years-old and has been snowboarding ever since!  Her parents are South Korean immigrants which means they were born in South Korea and moved here to the United States of America.

For Chloe, taking part in the 2018 Winter Olympics was a dream come true but what made it even more special was that this year the Olympics took place in South Korea, her family’s home country!  Chloe’s family watched and cheered her on as she gave the best snowboarding performance of her life!

Chloe says she loves snowboarding and has been dedicated to the sport for almost her entire life!  Not only is Chloe an amazing athlete, but she is also kind, funny, and really fun to be around!  That makes her a star!

Did you watch any of the 2018 Winter Olympics?  What was your favorite sport to watch?  Do you play any sports?  What do you love to do?  Keep up the great work and don’t forget to have fun!
