Mid-competition, U.S. halfpipe snowboarder Chloe Kim took to Twitter looking for some ice cream.
“Could be down for some ice cream rn,” a 17-year-old tweeted on Feb. 12 in PyeongChang (Feb. 11 in a U.S.). A user asked, “Aren’t we competing right now?” to that she responded a humble “yes…”
Even with Olympic bullion on a line, a gifted snowboarder has time for food – even in a center of an event. Earlier in a day, she tweeted about how a quite “bomb” churro helped ease her nerves.
With dual back-to-back food tweets in one day, maybe someone should make certain Kim is removing her sugarine repair in a Olympic Village. Does she know churro ice cream bowls exist?
Kim, a flashy X Games, World Snowboard Tour and Winter Youth Olympics snowboarder, achieved good in her dual subordinate runs on Feb. 12, earning a mark in a finals on Feb. 13 (the dusk of a 12th in a U.S.). All eyes were on Kim streamer into a Olympics, though after snagging a tip mark after a subordinate round, halfpipe bullion looks like it’ll be hers to lose. A award tomorrow could make Kim a youngest American lady to win an Olympic award in snowboarding, violation teammate Kelly Clark’s bullion award in 2002 during age 18.
