Chloe Kim is a 17-year-old snowboarding superstar who is part of the U.S. Olympic team in the upcoming PyeongChang 2018. Kim who was born on April 23, 2000, is a familiar face in competitions in the U.S. and in other countries. She trained in Valais, Switzerland and at the Mammoth Mountain in California.
Kim was too young to compete in the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic games, but she won the silver medal in superpipe in the Winter X Games during the same year. In 2015, Kim took home the Gold in the same event. She was only 14 at that time when she held the record of being the youngest gold medalist until 2016 when Kelly Sildaru won the gold at the age of 13. It was in 2016 when Kim held the record of being the only person under the age of 16 to win three gold medals at an X Games. During the U.S. Snowboarding Grand Prix in 2016, her snowboarding prowess led her to become the first woman in a snowboarding competition to land back-to-back 1080 spins. To top it off, Kim scored a perfect 100 points.
In the Winter Youth Olympic Games of 2016, she became the first American woman to win a gold in the snowboarding competition. Another record she held that year was having the highest score in the women’s snowboarding event in the history of the Youth Olympic Games. She was the flag bearer for Team U.S.A. during the 2016 Winter Youth Olympic Games opening ceremony. Kim’s superior snowboarding skills were recognized, and she was nominated for the Best Breakthrough Athlete at the 2016 ESPYS Awards.
PyeongYang 2018 will showcase Kim’s extraordinary snowboarding abilities. Her passion and sheer determination only shows that there are even greater things that she will be accomplishing in the future. With major companies such as Target backing her, this is only the beginning of a spectacular career for a very promising young athlete. At this time, however, we do not have sufficient information to estimate Chloe Kim net worth in 2018.
