Chloe Kim dazzles in Halfpipe; USA takes home two more medals

Her score there was a 93.75, which put her almost nine points clear of the other 11 riders, none of whom would crack 90.

"When I'd wake up, I'd just wake up at a new spot every time without even knowing what happened", Chloe said. "The third run was just for me, to show myself that I could do it and put down the best run I could do".

Kim is used to breaking records by now: When she was 15, she became the youngest person ever to win gold at the X-Games, and the first female athlete to land back-to-back 1080s in competition.

She said: "My dad's always like 'Chloe, I'm a celebrity now".

Online reaction to Kim's success in South Korea was largely positive, some likening her effortless brilliance to Kim Yuna, who won figure skating gold at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.

Kim has been projected to win this event by a wide margin for years, but U.S. Olympic history has enough seemingly sure-things who never quite closed the deal for today still to be celebrated.

Because of her Korean heritage, Kim has also attracted swathes of support from local fans and is greeted by cheers and requests for wefies everywhere she goes. Just think: Most 17-year-olds' biggest accomplishments are good grades and passing their driver's license test.

Kim's been one-to-watch on the snowboarding circuit for a number of years but was too young to compete at the last Olympics four years ago in Sochi, Russia.

"I don't really know what's happening, and I'm actually feeling a little anxious right now", Kim said. "Wish I finished my breakfast sandwich but my stubborn self decided not to and now I'm getting hangry", she wrote. Yasuo Saito, vice president of the Japanese Olympic Committee, said the JOC would work to help the 21-year-old skater clear his name after the Olympics. She was 13 at the time, too young to make the trip to Russian Federation.

"We told her to be ready to have to throw down on her third run", Vito said. But she still wanted to go bigger and better. As a result, she dedicated her final run to her.

For example: She tweeted about how hungry she was prior to her gold medal run in the halfpipe.

Pumping her fists after finishing with back-to-back 1080 spins, Kim was serenaded by a pumped-up crowd chanting: "Chloe Kim, Chloe Kim!". "I thought I had a chance to bring her to the Olympics, so it was incredible and very lucky that they matched together".

After the flower ceremony, Kim fought through an overwhelming crush of media, coaches and fans to reach her parents for the first time all day. So, she waited and made her debut in Pyeongchang, South Korea, a city located a few hours east of Seoul, where her parents grew up and where much of her extended family still lives.

IOC, if you're listening, give the people what they want.
