Chloe Kim Bio – Boyfriend, Family & Net Worth

The Olympics is a global sporting competition that features a range of competitors from different sports across different countries. It is one of the most prestigious stages in the world and it has been graced with the presence of a number of iconic athletes. At the 2018 Winter Olympics, a snowboarder, Chloe Kim joined its rank of iconic athletes as the youngest woman to win an Olympic snowboarding medal.

Since she made the impressive feat, Chloe Kim has risen to become one of the most important names in American sports, with a level of stardom that compares to her peers in more popular sports like track and tennis. Her resume includes other achievements like winning the X Games four times and dual goal medals at the Winter Youth Olympics Games.

In this article, we further explore everything you need to know about the young phenomenon.

Early Life

Chloe Kim’s life began on the 23rd of April, 2000 in Long Beach, California where she was born to South Korean parents who had emigrated to the United States. With the support of her parents, she began a life of snowboarding at the age of four, training at Mountain High and began competing in snowboarding competitions two years after.

Her training took her all the way to Geneva, Switzerland and back to her home state, California before she eventually joined the US Snowboarding team at the age of 13. Sadly, her age kept her from making her Olympics debut in 2014 at Sochi. Instead, she reserved her exploits for the X Games, where she finished second in her first competition. In the following year, she won her first gold in the Winter X Games.

She has gone on to win four more gold medals in the competition, accomplishing feats like scoring 100 perfect points.

In the 2016 Winter Youth Olympics, Chloe Kim continued her exceptional display and won two gold medals, becoming the first American woman to win a gold medal at the competition. Her biggest victory yet was at the 2018 Winter Olympics, where she won the gold medal in the Women’s Halfpipe finishing just seven points shy of a perfect score. She set a couple of records at the competition, including becoming the youngest woman to land two 1080-degree spins.

Chloe’s victories have earned her a number of accolades, including being named in the Time magazine’s Time 100 list in 2018 and also getting nominated in the ESPYS award for Best Breakthrough Athlete.

Combined with the winnings from her competitions, she has been able to accrue an estimated net worth of $400 thousand. That amount is expected to go up in the coming years.

Meet Her Boyfriend

Fans of Chloe Kim are bound to wonder if the superstar snowboarder has a man in her life and the resounding answer to that at the moment is no.

Chloe Kim, at the moment, is concentrating her efforts on her snowboarding career and isn’t known to be involved in any relationship at the moment. Of course, that is not to say she has never been in a relationship.
