Having not heard much about Chloe Kim before, we were as surprised as anyone else when this 13-year-old (13 FFS!) rocked up and stole the third podium spot from right under the noses of the seasoned competitors surrounding her.
Like the female equivalent of Ayumu Hirano, Chloe is now gonna be the girl we’re watching at every halfpipe comp this winter…. except, unfortunately, the big one. American rules state that she’s too young to be selected for the US Olympic team. Shame, cos that could really have shaken things up.
