Chloe Kim’s Wins Halfpipe’s 2019 Snowboard World Championships

Chloe Kim (Torrence, Calif.) took home the halfpipe gold as U.S. Snowboard teammate Maddie Mastro (Wrightwood, Calif.) grabbed the bronze at the 2019 FIS Snowboard, Freestyle and Freeski World Championships, presented by Toyota, Friday at Utah’s Park City Mountain.

“I’m pretty stoked,” said Kim, who pulled out a new trick – a front double cork 1080 – for her victory lap after already securing the gold medal with a score of 93.50 “It’s been pretty rough to find a good halfpipe to do it in that’s safe and that’s fun to do it in. And so today, I was like, ‘I have a third run, why not try it?’ I really wish I would have gotten it, but at the same time I kinda knew it wasn’t going to go all right when I took off. But I’m pretty stoked on how it went and hyped to go home in one piece. So, it’s all good!”
