While this certainly isn’t Kim’s first break from competition, the news came fresh off her Beijing Olympic victory. One of the most anticipated sports in Beijing was the snowboarding event, and Chloe Kim was the star. Taking gold in the women’s halfpipe, Kim claimed her second Olympic title in 2022.

Back in Pyeongchang 2018, Kim became the first woman to win an Olympic snowboarding gold at the young age of 17. Following Pyeongchang, Kim took a year-long break to focus on her studies. After her consecutive victory in Beijing, the snowboarder has decided to sit out the 2022-23 season as well.

While the Olympic season has been rewarding for Kim, it has also been quite demanding for her. She has taken some time to recuperate and take care of her mental health. Fortunately, Kim also declared an interest to go three-for-three in Milan-Cortina 2026. The hiatus doesn’t mean that she has taken her eyes off her third Olympic gold.

Kim has won a record number of 6 X Games, 2 Youth Olympic gold medals, and 2 World Championship titles. In July 2018, Kim won three ESPYs for Best Female Athlete, Best Female Olympian, and Best Female Action Sports Athlete. And she is only 22 years old!
