Kim makes halfpipe final with top mark, Clark just advances

American snowboarding sensation Chloe Kim had one thing on her mind after she nailed top score in Olympic halfpipe qualifying with a jaw-dropping display Monday - a well-deserved ice cream.

So how did she fix it?

Eventually, after a two-year stint living in Switzerland with her aunt and snowboarding in the Alps, Kim came back to California and joined Wisner's program at Mammoth.

Indeed. I've never come across a churro that wasn't bomb. She's caught the eye of junk food companies, too - Oreo is one of many to hop on the Chloe Kim bandwagon.

She's been able to win numerous contests since then without that second 1080 in her run, but with many of her competitors suddenly stepping up their game and learning the frontside 1080 before PyeongChang, Kim dusted off the back-to-back 10s again last month at X Games Aspen. "Honestly, it's too much for me right now, so I don't know if I could have done it four years ago".

If Kim, who is 17, puts down the flawless performances she's known for at the Winter Olympics, she could become the youngest female snowboarder to win Olympic gold. "She takes more runs than anyone", said Clark, a five-time Olympian and three-time Olympic medalist. The 13-year-old Kim won silver in the X Games and had the scores to qualify for Sochi had she been old enough. "I've been really trying to clean up all the little details and I think I did that so I'm really excited".

"I want everything to look good and ideal even though it may not be insane progressive or new", Kim said, "but I do want it to look good so everyone feels happy when they watch", Kim said.

These displays of unity at the Olympics fill us with hope
Kim Yo-jong, 30, is the first member of the North's ruling family to visit the South since the end of the Korean War. Other demonstrators anxious the show of unity between the two nations threatened South Korea's democracy.

She says the goal is to allow humanitarian aid and medical care to flow to more than 700 civilians in eastern Ghouta. On Jan. 20, Turkey launched "Operation Olive Branch" to clear YPG militants from Afrin in northwestern Syria.

"She definitely reminds me of myself". A little bit of the nerves, a little bit of the wind got to them.

In the meantime, Kim will graduate with her class at Mammoth High School in June. Competitive snowboarding is a young person's sport, Jong Jin tells her, and getting an education is important. "I've always had to fend for myself". In every other way, her father has been there to support her. "I'm so thankful that the condition has been wonderful".

"I was hearing a lot of rumors about him, and our relationship in general. That sounds kind of harsh, but it's true".

That the opportunity comes in South Korea makes it all the better.

"She is representing Korea and America", Boran said.

They began to see the dividends in 2014.
