During her performance in Pyeongchang 2018, Kim had revealed how she was craving some ice cream and churros. Taking her cravings to Twitter, Kim revealed what followed her tweet.

“I felt loved”: Chloe Kim

At just 21 years old, Chloe Kim is regarded as one of the best female snowboarders of all time. She won her first Olympic medal at just 17, announcing herself on the global platform.

With a remarkable score of 98.25 points, Kim won her gold medal at Pyeongchang in 2018. Notably, Kim was the first athlete ever to win all four major snowboarding titles; Olympics, Worlds, Youth Olympics, and X Games.

Back in 2018, Kim had tweeted about churros and how she felt really good after eating one. She also expressed her desire for some ice cream, unaware of what was about to follow.

After she reached home, she received multiple boxes of churros and ice cream sent by fans and loved ones. Delighted by the pleasant surprise, Kim said, “Post Olympics I tweeted about like churros and ice cream and I got home and I had boxes and boxes and boxes. Shoutout to everyone who sent me ice cream… I felt loved.”

Kim also revealed that her favorite desserts were lemon bars and pie, stating how she absolutely loved them.

What does Kim enjoy the most?

Being an elite athlete, Kim is used to training for hours together. For the same, she has to stay away from home for long durations. This has been her routine for a while, as Chloe has been snowboarding since a very young age.

At the last Winter Olympics, she was just 17 years old. This time in Beijing, Kim will be 21. Turns out, Kim’s priorities in life have changed since then, as she says so herself.

“I was 17 going into the Olympics, I am 21 now. My priorities have shifted quite a bit,” said the snowboarder.
