PYEONGCHANG, South Korea - Chloe Kim's just 17 years old and competing in her first Olympics.

But the Korean-American snowboarder doesn't seem particularly nervous, taking some time out during the middle of Monday's halfpipe qualifications to get on Twitter and talk about dessert.



That elicited a quick response.



Which was quickly followed by Kim's admission.


Kim was the top qualifier for Tuesday's final with a 95.50 score and is a heavy favorite to win the gold. But after qualifications, she was simply ready to eat.

"I really like vanilla swiss almond," Kim said after Monday's run. "But I'll be OK with mango sorbet."

Kim had given an update on her snacking a day earlier, too.
