Who is Chloe Kim?

Chloe Kim is an American snowboarder and two-time Olympic gold medalist. Her accomplishments are not just impressive but nearly unbelievable. She is 22 years old and is South Korean. Kim made a name for herself through her snowboarding skill, but also through her amazing work ethic, drive, and determination. She won the ESPY award for Best Female Athlete. She was also the youngest female athlete to ever win a Gold Olympic snowboarding medal. She earned it at just 17 years old, and these are just some of her impressive characteristics and accomplishments.  


Why has she Decided to take a break?

Kim has decided to take this break simply to improve her mental health. Her hard work must have taken a major toll on her as well as the fact she just had too much on her plate and how she would like to focus on herself. Kim told a reporter, “ “(I) just want to kind of reset. I don’t want to get right back into it after such a fun, but draining year, at the same time, knowing that it was an Olympic year.” Kim discussed putting herself first but assures fans she will be back to “earn her third gold medal.”
