Chloe Kim's coronation is complete as rising US star wins halfpipe gold in Pyeongchang

Kim will vie for her first-ever gold medal Tuesday in PyeongChang, South Korea, in the snowboard-halfpipe finals.

Kim might not have the support of a boyfriend cheering her on as she competes in her very first Olympics, but her parents and her family, many of whom live in South Korea, are her biggest fans. At 34, she is competing in her fifth games.

Immediately after finishing for the day, Kim said her plan was to go get ice cream despite the frigid conditions. Her spunky attitude comes through on Instagram, where she often posts about food, especially candies and fast food.

"He actually dragged me to the mountain when I was 4 to bribe my mom to come snowboard with him, so it really wasn't voluntary on my part", she said. Her dad has made sure she's still involved in as many senior activities as possible, Jayne said, as she finds a balance between work and play.

Last February, White talked about Kim and mentioned how he felt when she posted the highest score in qualifying in a halfpipe competition a few years prior.

The women will hit the halfpipe at 7 p.m. with the gold medal final run scheduled for 8 p.m. USA women have never swept a Winter Games event, but they sure look strong in this one. "We were awestruck because she's an incredible athlete, and then she's an incredible young teenage woman". Veteran Kelly Clark pioneered the 1080, which is three full rotations, five years earlier. Because of that, she had a long, drawn-out wait. Her favorite flavor: vanilla Swiss almond.

"My grandma's in Seoul - she might be here", said Kim. Her first quote following the competition: "I want my ice cream". "I've been really trying to clean up all the little details and I think I did that so I'm really excited".

"But I gave her some stuff I got from the opening ceremony. I love watching her ride", White told Sports Illustrated.

"It's just great 'cause it's kind of the American dream, American dream come true", Jong Jin said.
