Here is the status for Team USA snowboarder and Olympic gold medalist Chloe Kim for the 2022 Winter Olympics.

Chloe Kim is game for the 2022 Winter Olympics.

The prodigy, who became the only athlete in the history of X Games to rack up three gold medals (she did so at age 15), is set to defend her Olympic women’s halfpipe competition title on Feb. 9, in Beijing 2022. Kim nearly accomplished a perfect score at the Pyeongchang 2018 Olympic Winter Games. She scored 98.25 out of 100 and became the youngest snowboarder to win a gold medal at the Olympics at 17 years old. En route to earning her high score she landed back-to-back 1080s.

Kim’s rise to stardom included being prominently featured in late-night talk shows and a cameo in the 2019 motion picture adaptation of “Charlie’s Angels.” The Princeton University student has also been featured on a few television series including a guest spot on “Scooby-Doo and Guess Who?” Plus, she also dressed as The Jellyfish for a four-episode run as a contestant on the fourth season of the popular FOX celebrity competition show “The Masked Singer.”

Is Chloe Kim prime to win another gold at the 2022 Winter Olympics?

While Kim has branched out she’s certainly shown she is locked in for snowboarding this season. The six-time gold medalist has won five consecutive women’s halfpipe competitions since her two-year hiatus. December 2021 was Kim’s most recent victory when she took home the Dew Tour title.

Kim has assured that she’s “well prepared,” as the Feb. 9 date is approaching.

“I have a very clear picture what I need to do as an athlete … going into the Olympics,” Kim said.

From everything that Kim has shown this snowboarding season there is no doubt she is a favorite to repeat on her quest to defend her halfpipe title.
