Chloe Kim Gets Her Gold
In 2014, Chloe Kim was more than good enough to qualify for the Olympic team... but was too young. Four years -- and two Youth Olympic gold medals, a year-long winning streak, one perfect 100 and countless other achievements -- later, Kim came to PyeongChang as the heavy gold medal favorite. After scoring a monster 98.25 on her final run, the gold was finally hers.

Chloe Kim’s father says this made all his sacrifice worth it. Pointed to himself, said “American dream!” and whooped. #pyeongchang2018— Jake Seiner (@Jake_Seiner) February 13, 2018

Kelly Clark: Still The GOAT
Five-time Olympian Kelly Clark is widely considered a pioneer and one of the greatest to ever strap on a snowboard and drop into a halfpipe. Though Clark finished just off the podium in fourth place, the respect still runs deep.
Since we have so many new snowboarding fans tonight, Kelly Clark is the reason why you see women's snowboarding at this level. Pioneered the 1080 for women's snowboarding. She is an absolute legend. 5 Olympics, dozens of medals, and the greatest to ever do it.— Austin Nettleton (@austinsqueezy) February 13, 2018
Love me some Chloe Kim but Kelly Clark is the OG of American women’s halfpipe #snowboard Also did I mention she’s 34?!?— Abigail Whitaker (@AbigailWhitake1) February 13, 2018
Kelly Clark is an absolute legend and inspiration. A true giant in the sport, whose young riders owe much to her pushing the envelope. #TeamUSA— Devin Lowe (@devin__lowe) February 13, 2018
me? emotional that kelly clark saw her spot on the podium go to another, younger american, with grace and poise? emotional about the passing of the torch in dominance of the sport? never— Eleni Demestihas (@egdemestihas) February 13, 2018
kelly clark is THE queen of the pipe and that’s final— lyss (@staalethorgrens) February 13, 2018
Mad respect to @thekellyclark and all you have done for the sport of snowboarding. You are a true legend, an inspiring mentor to all women, and made us all proud through the years representing USA! 🇺🇸👏#KellyClark— Sheri (@redsheri1) February 13, 2018
💔 @thekellyclark— amy pozen (@poz15) February 13, 2018
Such a pioneer!! I picked up a snowboard for the 1st time after watching you in 2002. 5 times representing 🇺🇸 on the big stage. Future of this sport is so bright bc of you.
Shaun White Doing Shaun White Things
If you watched the men's halfpipe snowboarding qualifiers, you might have mistaken them for the finals, because things got CRAZY. At the forefront was two-time Olympic gold medalist Shaun White, who was up to his usual tricks, laying down monster runs, scoring 98.50... you know, the usual.
