  • U.S. snowboarder Chloe Kim won the gold medal in the
    women’s halfpipe with ease.
  • Kim’s first run was dominant enough to win her the gold
    medal through three rounds, but after winning the gold, she
    went for a third run as a victory lap.
  • On her third and final run, Kim threw down back-to-back
    1080s, her specialty, becoming the first woman to do so in
    Olympic history.

Chloe Kim cruised to a gold medal in the women’s halfpipe final
on Tuesday in Pyeongchang with one of the most dominant
performances of the Winter
Olympics
.

The 17-year-old snowboarder, who entered the games as the
heavy-medal favorite, practically sealed a gold medal on the
first of three runs.

Kim scored a 93.75, several points higher than the next closest
competitor, and did so while leaving plenty of fuel in the tank.

In between her first and final runs,
she tweeted about breakfast
while the competition failed to
come even close to touching her, with the second-highest score
coming in at 89.

As the last athlete in the order, Kim won the gold medal before
her final run even began, but took a third run as a victory lap.
With the gold medal already sealed, Kim then made history by
throwing down back-to-back 1080s, becoming the first woman to do
so in Olympic history.

Her final run was a 98.25.

Kim came into the Olympics with high expectations and perhaps
exceeded them — no one came close to touching her.

“Believe the hype,” NBC said as the halfpipe final ended. If they
didn’t before, the Olympic world believes in Kim now.
