Chloe Kim, 14, Wins Winter X Games Halfpipe


One young girl is being called the future of snowboarding.

Chloe Kim, 14, became the youngest Winter X Game gold medalist this week in Aspen, beating the world's best, 31-year-old Kelly Clark, in the the Women's Snowboard Superpipe competition on Saturday.

Clark was on her way to grab her sixth consecutive gold medal at the games but that winning streak was brought to an end by a teen - who hasn't even been alive as long as Clark has been in the game.

But Kim says she's always thought of Clark as her idol.

Kim was the youngest athlete to win an X Games medal with her halfpipe silver last year. Saturday night she became the youngest gold medalist.
