Sports Commentator, American: I wouldn’t be surprised if she goes for the back-to-back tens on her victory lap, to be honest with you.

Sports Commentator, British: Chloe Kim dropping in. Already an Olympic gold medalist here in Korea. Will we see the back-to-back tens, the combination, something we have not seen in Olympic games?

The gold medal’s already been won. Will she now make history as well, and become even more of a legend of the sport at just seventeen years old? Here we go. Chloe Kim, already a gold medalist.

Sports Commentator, American: In the pipe, big back-side air; she’s going for it. Are we going to see the front ten? Yes, we are: front-size, ten-eighty (1080) tail. Stom Sat. Here’s where we see the cad-ten. Cad-ten, she goes for it. Gets it around.

First time the back-to-back tens have been thrown in Olympics game. She made history a couple years ago in a world cup match. Now here she is using the Olympics into the McTwist.

Shout outs to Michael Miguel, the skateboarder who that trick is named after.

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .

And Chloe Kim could beat herself out here. This could be even a higher score. But she is guaranteed a gold medal here at the Olympics.

Sports Commentator, British: Chloe Kim has led the competition through qualifying from start to finish. And now she’s the Olympic Gold Medalist. The seventeen-year old from the USA.

She is going to be around for a while, and she could dominate this sport for a long, long time.

Sports Commentator, American: Alright, well here we go the replay of the run. The beautiful method there from Chloe Kim, showing off that style — style written all over her snowboarding.

And here is the first ten-eighty (1080). Front-side ten-eighty (1080) with the tail-grab. Spots her landing. Gets that rotation around. A nice, clean line. And then into the switch front-side 1080, AKA the cad 1080.

She gets the back-to-back tens, and the rest of the run is beautiful as well.

I would not be surprised to see her beat her score of 93.75 with this run. This could be even a higher score. This run was extremely progressive and just beautifully thrown by Chloe Kim.

Sports Commentator, British: She’s already won the gold. The question is, can she beat the shadow of herself.

Sports Commentator, American: And there’s the Hawkin flip. The cab 720, with some inversion of that trick there, the inverted swift front 7520.

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .

Sports Commentator, British: Chloe Kim waiting for the judges . . . it’s a 98.25! Chloe Kim already a gold medalist. But she’s just smashed her own score well and truly out of the park. 98.25, Kim has delivered.
