U.S. snowboarder Chloe Kim makes history with second Olympic gold
The big picture: Kim grabbed the finals lead with a 94.00 after her first run and never relinquished it despite scoring under 30 points on her final two runs.
- The 21-year-old won gold in Pyeongchang four years ago, but then took a two-year hiatus from snowboarding. She returned to the sport last January.
What she's saying: "I'm just so proud of myself and I'm so grateful for everyone that supported me, even when I decided to take time off to go to school," Kim said after her win.
- "I really think if it weren't for everyone supporting me, I wouldn't be here with another gold medal."
For the record: Queralt Castellet of Spain took silver with a 90.25 on her second run of the day.
- Japan's Sena Tomita edged China's Cai Xuetong for the bronze medal.
