Chloe Kim Wins Gold & Captures American Hearts
Thank goodness for the Olympics because if we did not have them, it might be absolute ghost town for blog posts. There was a ton of hype around Chloe Kim before the games started as this dynamic Korean-American who was 17 years old. She appears to potentially be the female Shaun White as Kim could have been in the 2014 Winter Olympics if not for being 13 years old. She dominated the Olympics with a gold medal and scoring above 90 in all four runs of the Olympics. She also tweeted in-between her runs.
Wish I finished my breakfast sandwich but my stubborn self decided not to and now I'm getting hangry

Twitter noted that Kim grew 150k followers overnight. She talked through wanting a churro a couple days ago, and how she was ‘hangry’ yesterday when waiting for another run. I promise you there are already BuzzFeed articles out about ’25 ways Chloe Kim is like all of us.’ I think people love her carefree attitude. Like we talked about with Adam Rippon yesterday, she’s going to have a ‘glow up’ when she gets back to the states as the kids say. The sponsorship are going to flow in for her.
