5 Questions With 15-Year-Old Snowboarding Phenom Chloe Kim
There's no other way to put it: Chloe Kim is a certified badass.
In 2015, at just 14 years old, Chloe won X Games gold in the SuperPipe event, beating out X Games veteran Kelly Clark. The win solidified Chloe's place in sports history as the youngest gold medalist ever at a Winter X Games.
But, she's not done yet.
Chloe, who was too young to compete in the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, says attending the winter Olympics in 2018 would be "a huge honor." But, before she gets on a plane in 2018 to kick ass and take names in South Korea, she first has to stop in at the 2016 X Games in Aspen.
We emailed a few questions to Chloe to get an inside look at what it's like to be 15 years old, a total boss and a young lady that women of every age can look up to.
How do you balance being a teenager and a famous athlete?
I try to live a normal teenage life as much as possible. I go to school when I can and I hang out with my friends. It’s just hard to get that kind of free time during the winter, because I have to do a bunch of homework when I can, so that I don’t have to worry about it when competing.
