Kim's competitors spent the rest of the event trying to match her score. To her, it meant everything. I don't know about you, but when I think of an Olympic gold medal victor I don't usually think they're listening to "Motor Sport".

Pulling out a spectacular array of tricks on each of her three runs - the third of which earned her 98.25 points out of a possible 100 - Kim drew huge cheers from home fans and U.S. fans alike.

"Dang, I hate talking about my dad when he's there because he gets pretty cocky", he said of her father, who was in the back of the press conference room.

Her run was lovely, and she clinched a 93.75. She secured her spot with a strong second run that had flawless pacing and control in the halfpipe at Phoenix Snow Park.

CORRECTION: February 13, 2018An earlier version of this story said Chloe's second score was higher than her first.

How old do you have to be to compete in the Olympics?

Her most interesting food-related tweet came during competition, between her first and second run in the halfpipe.

Kim's final run earned her a almost flawless score from the judges. The medal ceremonies at these Winter Games have been held hours after some events.

On her third Olympic gold run, Kim listened to Migos, Cardi B and Nicki Minaj's song "MotorSport".

"It was definitely a bittersweet position to be in when it was between me and Kelly for that bronze medal position", Gold said, noting that she looked up to Clark.

Kim dazzled in the pipe, becoming the first woman to land back-to-back 1080s at the Olympics and the youngest woman to win in snowboarding.

Chloe's extended Korean family was on hand for her big moment - her parents, two sisters, sister's fiance, three aunts, two cousins, and her 75-year-old grandmother, Moon Jung Ae. "She's handled success and pressure with grace and class, and it's refreshing".

The victory placed John Morris and Kaitlyn Lawes in an elite company, the Canadians adding their names to a short list of four curlers who have won two Olympic gold medals.

"When we started, Korea was not declared as hosting the Olympics", Jong Jin Kim said. However, he didn't do it just to advance Kim's career - the team was cheaper than regular lessons.

"You're always so thankful for what your parents have done, but at the same time that's an extra-hard expectation to live up to".

She put on quite a show, and she will be rewarded in ways large and small. Her Ywitter following increased by 100k during the contest alone.

Here's what she did on that epic run: Method; Front 10; Cab 10; Front 9; McTwist; Crippler 7 - that's according to the list she reeled off at a news conference afterward. He gushes with pride in raving that "She is my American dream", of his history-making daughter. "I think today I did it for my family and I am so grateful to them".

Snowboarder Mark McMorris says he's less stressed about competition after a crash left him with life-threatening injuries last March.
