Chloe Kim Becomes First Woman to Land Snowboarding Trick


The 18 year old snowboarding Olympic gold medalist, Chloe Kim, has just landed a trick that no woman in the history of half piping competition could. The trick was a frontside double cork 1080 on a halfpipe. Shaun White was the first man to ever land the trick in 2006 Torino Games. Kim completed her trick while training in Switzerland. Chloe Kim is a five time winner in the FIS Alpine Ski World Cup, along with a four time X games champion. It’s safe to say that Kim’s future has a lot in store for her.
