  • Chris S

    Yaaaa.... her life is about to change

  • Amanda Anderson

    So proud of you Chloe!! Get it girl!!

  • Smittymanjensen II

    And people say Asians can’t do sports

  • John Tatum

    great style points for that smile...goooo Chloe!

  • Travis Takamori

    Man! From Chloe to Red, USA must have a garden where we grow Olympic athletes, like snowboarders, swimmers, gymnasts, etc.! Watching the Olympics makes me so motivated to go out and try snowboarding again, only to be slapped with reality like the past times I tried.

  • Fly solo 28

    Only the greats make it look easy. I feel I can do this but I will definitely break my neck or fly over the half pipe.

  • DanielSS

    No shade but why are women’s skill so much behind the men’s. If you watch what Chloe did and then any man in the Olympic halfpipe competition it’s not even close. The level of skill is so far beyond it’s ridiculous. I just don’t understand why there is such a divide in skill level. Two 1080s wouldn’t even qualify you for the men’s comp, that’s like warming up for them.

  • Huh What

    Koreans replacing all players lol...eSports and Sports.

  • Cheyanne Howe

    I’m so excited for her. Definitely a lot of natural talent and a dad who fostered it to boot. I like her personality too. None of that hokey fake bro’d out personality that snowboarders tend to adopt. (I can say that, I’ve been riding/involved with the sport for about 18 years now.) Really really happy for her.


    Love that an Asian person got to rep America.

  • NismoFury

    All American 100% rednecks can't get passed the fact that Asians can be 100% American.

  • Will Norton

    Glad she is finally getting some recognition outside of just snowboard fans. She has been killing it for years now! Only reason she did take the world by storm in Sochi was because she was too young. Incredible athlete that is going to change women snowboarding drastically


    Can u ride a full pipe tho????

  • mike hunt

    And yet again the Asians win. Game over.

  • KC Luu

    I love the irony of how a Korean American is representing the United States in Korea. I'm sure her family and friends on both sides of the Pacific are so proud of her. She's going to be a star for a long time.

  • Hampdood84

    Affirmative action for the Olympics now!

  • peach tea

    She’s so amazing! Congratz Chloe! 💕

  • B Griffin

    I live like 20 minutes away from where she lives

  • Efemral

    I got out of bed without falling over once.

  • Cabbage Lettuce

    Go girl! Love my fellow Korean American! Go America!!! Team USA!!! 🇺🇸

  • Caribou Luu

    When does she turn 18? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

  • Sandara Puanani

    "She's just cruising but it looks so flawless, so magical!


    😓😓 DO NOT Read My Name 😓😓

  • AdoptABlackCat

  • diver dave

    She's a sweetie and i hope that Shaun White starts training her so that she can start throwing down a lot higher quality tricks !

  • Hampdood84

    Enough if gender segregation in the Olympics, invented by the male patriarchy. time for all 60 genders to play against each other.

  • AHS 786

    She was a hq trivia correct answer

  • Daniel Heyward
