What Was Chloe Kim Listening to for Her Gold Halfpipe Run?

'California girl that went to Olympics' wins gold medal in women's halfpipe

China's Liu Jiayu was second with a best score of 89.75 and American Arielle Gold claimed bronze.

Before Chloe made history with her gold - becoming the youngest American to win an Olympic snowboard event, Kim texted her that it's time to be a dragon.

It's been a good few days for Kim, the hero snack lovers didn't know they needed until she was flipping, tweeting and munching her way into their hearts.

"I hate talking about my dad when he is here because he gets really cocky", she joked.

After her win, the Olympic superstar told reporters her performance was dedicated to her family and acknowledged what a monumental moment it was for her and her family to win this gold in South Korea, her parents' homeland. Or that her 75-year-old grandma, who lives in Seoul, came to watch her compete for the first time wearing a neck-warmer embroidered with "Chloe"?

Kim said she grew up in a very Korean environment and always ate Korean food. But she's not the only 15 year-old competing in the Olympics this year.

"Wish I finished my breakfast sandwich but my stubborn self decided not to and now I'm getting hangry", Kim wrote Tuesday during the halfpipe final.

Minutes before learning she'd won, Kim took out her phone and sent a tweet to her 196,000 followers. On the first run: "Paparazzi" by Lady Gaga; for her third, she said, it was "MotorSport", by Migos, Cardi B and Nicki Minaj. "I wanted to do the back-to-back 10s".

Only the best of the three runs counts.

American teenager Chloe Kim and Austrian ski ace Marcel Hirscher lit up the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics on Tuesday on a day of drama that included the first doping scandal of the Games. Before heading back up the chairlift to take her second run, Kim stopped in the friends and family area at the bottom of the halfpipe and chatted with Burton Snowboards owners Jake Burton and Donna Carpenter, her sponsors since she was 13, and pro snowboarder Louie Vito. "I think I was so fortunate to find my passion and the thing that brought me so much joy at such a young age". "I was crying so much because I was so excited to just be a part of this journey".

"I've just been on my phone a lot of looking at social media, just trying to distract myself", Kim said. In fact there are five other 15-year-old Olympians this year, according to NBC Sports, and four 16-year-olds. And in a "Today" show appearance on Tuesday, Kim got to dig into the foods that she's been tweeting about.

In a rush of night-time finishes, Kjeld Nuis led a Dutch double in the men's 1,500-meter speedskating final, Natalie Geisenberger successfully defended her women's luge title in a 1-2 finish for Germany, the cross-country classic sprint titles went to Johannes Hoesflot Klaebo of Norway and Stina Nilsson of Sweden, and Italian short-track speedskater Arianna Fontana won the women's 500 meters.
