There is a lot of pressure on American snowboarder Chloe Kim, who
at 17 years old, is a heavy favorite to win gold in the ladies’

But if you thought Kim might be a little nervous during her first
Olympic event, guess again.
Kim ran the first of her two qualifying runs on Monday, scoring a
91.50, nearly four points better than any of the other

competitor she really is, sending out a tweet in the middle of
the competition simply saying she could go for some ice cream.

to easily qualify as one of the 12 snowboarders who will advance
to the final round.
In the meantime, somebody get Kim some ice cream!
