Pyeongchang Halfpipe hosted the coronation of an American Olympic darling late Tuesday morning, witnessing the dazzling, gold medal performance of 17-year-old Chloe Kim, an acrobatic performer of Korean heritage and California cool destined to become an even bigger star than she already is. "Now I'm going to hear that for three more years, 'I remember how you talked about me in press conference.' My dad has definitely sacrificed a lot for me".
"I'm so happy I was able to land and being here is so exciting, this has been a dream of mine". "It's just like the whole experience, the whole process has been so much more enjoyable for me". "I thought I had a chance to bring her to the Olympics, so it was incredible and very lucky that they matched together". Clark, the 2002 Olympic champion still going strong at age 34, couldn't quite catch Gold with an 83.50. Judges will score each run and award up to 100 points (which virtually no one ever gets); they will be evaluating riders on execution, variety, amplitude and difficulty.

- Chloe Kim (@chloekimsnow) February 12, 2018I'm so nervous! Chloe took lessons, and by the time she was 7, she was winning contests. "Bottom line - in the way that athletes are used today in brand campaigns, they have to have a personality and a voice to match, since the campaigns heavily rely on direct-to-consumer communication", Lindsey said. The couple got married, and Jong Kim would begin another American journey as they moved to California in 1998.

Neymar and Mbappe's fine form has ensured PSG now sit a healthy 11 points clear in Ligue 1 with 14 matches remaining. Subs: Isco (on for Vazquez, 63) 7, Mateo Kovacic (on for Modric, 63) 6, Gareth Bale (on for Asensio, 73) 6.
