The United States is currently in 5th place in the medal count of the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics, just a week after the competition began. The U.S. has revealed many underdogs as the games have progressed. This includes 17 year old Chloe Kim, who lead the women’s snowboarding division and won a gold medal for the United States on Tuesday, February 13.

Chloe is now the youngest person to win a gold medal for the women’s snowboard halfpipe and beat several previous gold medal winners for the title. Kim is also a four-time X-Game gold medalist and lives in Long Beach, California. She blew the competition away on her final run, when she scored an amazing 98.25 with the medal already secured after her first score of 93.75, saying she wanted to “one-up myself.” Arielle Gold took home the bronze medal for the United States with a score of 85.75.

“A lot of pressure, but I’m happy I was able to do it here and do it for the fans and the family. It was a really fun moment for everyone.” Kim said she was “stoked to bring home the gold!”
