Kim Jong-jin, father of US snowboarder Chloe Kim, speaks to reporters at Phoenix Snow Park in PyeongChang, some 180 kilometers east of Seoul, after watching his daughter's performance in the women's halfpipe event at the PyeongChang Winter Olympics on February 12, 2018. For that, she was off to get some ice cream. But it's not about one big trick, it's about the way she connects the whole run. Because of that, she had a long, drawn-out wait.
Clark, a three-time Olympic medalist, and Gold both qualified by the skin of their teeth, finishing 11th and 12th respectively.
"I don't even know what I did", joked Kim, whose parents come from South Korea and who has been adopted by locals as one of their own.
The blustery conditions that wreaked havoc across the way on the slopestyle course at the Pyeongchang Games played a factor on the halfpipe, as well. Her dad has made sure she's still involved in as many senior activities as possible, Jayne said, as she finds a balance between work and play. Not that that's a bad thing.
"After I was 9 or 10, it was all uphill for me", Kim said.
"Now that I think about it, I'm really glad I wasn't able to go", Kim told NBC Olympics previous year.
Kim meant what she tweeted.
Kim moved to Switzerland, where one of her aunts lives, in third and fourth grade, with Jong Jin and Boran, her mother, alternating trips to visit her. Now four others have, including their American teammates Arielle Gold and Maddie Mastro. She landed a superb first run and increased the difficulty on her second - posting a score of 95.50, which was quite a bit ahead of the next finisher, Liu Jiayu of China.
And as she heads to her first Olympics, to have gratitude for all the hard-earned lessons they've had together in snowboarding. "The pipes have been so good. I'm thankful the conditions have been so unbelievable".
"I want my ice cream!" screamed Kim after an acrobatic second run greeted with oohs and aahs by a packed crowd.
Her favorite flavor: vanilla Swiss almond.
"I just wrote 'Chloe, it's time to be a dragon, '" he said.
No ice cream for Clark.
The final begins at 1000 local time (0100 GMT) on Tuesday. "I had a really great practice, riding the best I've ridden all year". "All kids just want to be a normal teenager and that's what she seems like to me".
"That was very nerve-racking". Qualifiers are always much more intimidating for a lot of these girls than the finals.
"Just focus on the riding trick by trick, that's what you need to do to land runs".
