Jan 24, 2015 ~ Chloe Kim won Gold in the super pipe event in the 2015 Winter X Games beating Kelly Clark. Kim became the youngest Winter X Games gold medalist ever, overtaking the greatest women’s snowboarder of all time on her final run in the half pipe final.
Kim, who was born in 2000 and too young for the Sochi Olympics, scored 92 points in her third and final run in Aspen, Colo. She pushed the four-time reigning X Games champion Kelly Clark to silver after Clark scored 90 in her first run. Two-time Olympic medalist Torah Bright was third.
Clark, 31 and a three-time Olympic medalist, soared more than 16 feet above the halfpipe, reportedly a new women’s X Games record. She won her 10th X Games halfpipe medal, tying Shaun White for the record in the event.
