DENVER (AP) — Snowboarder Chloe Kim has long been in a class by her herself in the lofty subjects of double corks and front-side twists.
Soon, instead of defying physics, she could be learning some. And instead of making history, she will study it.
Kim is trading in a few trips down the halfpipe for a ride toward an Ivy League education. Starting in the fall, she's planning to be part of the Princeton Class of 2023.
The 14-year-old skateboarder from California frequently wears outfits inspired by 1990s pop music videos. She's a budding songwriter and jots down lyrics based on life experiences, which she points out have been rather limited so far.
That's changing fast. The world of Brighton Zeuner keeps getting bigger and broader with more notice and exposure.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — More than 140 survivors of sexual abuse by a former team doctor for USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University joined hands on stage to be honored with the Arthur Ashe Award for Courage at the ESPYs.
The women who spoke out against the abuse by Larry Nassar stood together Wednesday night in a powerful and solemn closing to the show highlighting the past year's top athletes and moments in sports.
VAIL, Colo. (AP) — In between the dozens of media appearances that have suddenly become her new day job, Chloe Kim slipped away from the lunch table, disappeared into the restroom, pulled the gold medal out of her bag ... and just sat there and stared at it.
"My parents were like, 'Why did it take you so long?" Kim said. "I said, 'Just looking at it.' I was thinking about what this means to me and letting it sink in."
PYEONGCHANG, South Korea (AP) — When the book is closed on these Olympics — all Olympics, really — Ester Ledecka will have her own chapter.
Though they're both on snow, skiing and snowboarding are simply not supposed to mix.
Though she could have been expected to win at one, nobody was supposed to do what she did.
NEW YORK (AP) — A gold medal used to be the golden ticket for lucrative endorsements — think Mary Lou Retton on a Wheaties box. But in the age of social media, athletes are making a name for themselves well ahead of time.
Even more so than in Rio in 2016 and Sochi in 2014, Pyeongchang athletes are Olympian at building brands.
PYEONGCHANG, South Korea (AP) — First, U.S. snowboarding star Chloe Kim tweeted about being "down for some ice cream" while competing in Pyeongchang, then about being "hangry" because she hadn't finished her breakfast sandwich.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A San Francisco Bay Area radio station has fired one of its hosts for sexual comments he made about 17-year-old Olympic snowboarder Chloe Kim on another station.
Program director Jeremiah Crowe of KNBR-AM said in a statement Wednesday that host Patrick Connor has been fired.
On Tuesday, on the Barstool Sports network on SiriusXM, Connor called Kim "fine as hell" along with more vulgar sexual comments, then said "the countdown is on" until Kim's 18th birthday.
PYEONGCHANG, South Korea (AP) — It was a day for all ages at the Winter Olympics.
PYEONGCHANG, South Korea (AP) — Chloe Kim stamped her name on a new era of snowboarding with a run down the halfpipe that, officially, did not mean anything. To her, it meant everything.
PYEONGCHANG, South Korea (AP) — It was a big day for snow sports at the Pyeongchang Olympics as American snowboarder Chloe Kim took gold with a near-perfect halfpipe run and Austrian Marcel Hirscher won the men's Alpine combined, the first career Olympic gold for one of skiing's greats. There were also some spills, as several skiers crashed out of the event.
Here are some highlights of Day 4 from Associated Press photographers.
ASPEN, Colo. (AP) — Ask snowboarder Chloe Kim what she thinks the "Chloe Kim Story" really is this year and she hesitates just a moment, before deciding on "The California girl that went to the Olympics."
ASPEN, Colo. (AP) — Chloe Kim got the win, of course.
The other women on the Winter X Games halfpipe put on quite a show, too, and delivered a message: They're not going to just hand Kim the gold medal 2 1/2 weeks from now at the Pyeongchang Olympics.
Chloe Kim on Making Her Olympic Debut
PARK CITY, Utah (AP) — Arielle Gold was named to the U.S. Olympic halfpipe team and will get a chance to compete at the Pyeongchang Games four years after separating her shoulder during a training run in Sochi and never reaching the starting gate.
Chase Josey picked up the final spot on the men's halfpipe team, thanks to his victory last weekend at the final qualifying event.
Shaun White, Ben Ferguson and Jake Pates had already clinched spots on the team, along with Chloe Kim and Kelly Clark.
The first time they met, Chloe Kim was in awe. And why not? Kelly Clark was, after all, an Olympic gold medalist and one of best snowboarders in the world.
"My parents were, like, 'Oh my gosh, you touched Kelly Clark's jacket,'" Kim said of that day, nearly 10 years ago, in the lift line at Mammoth Mountain.
Kim said she felt like the luckiest girl in the world to get to ride up the chairlift with Clark.
BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. (AP) — The most surprised guy on the halfpipe Friday: Jake Pates.
He also happened to be the winner of the Dew Tour and might have to clear his schedule for Feb. 14, the day of the men's halfpipe final at the Pyeongchang Games.
The 19-year-old out of Eagle, Colorado came from nowhere to win the second of four U.S. qualifying events and put himself in position to be on the team heading to the Olympics in two months.
