Chloe Kim's cool, but her dad may be even cooler

Canada have been the dominant force in men’s ice hockey
She said: "My dad's always like 'Chloe, I'm a celebrity now".
Before Chloe made history with her gold - becoming the youngest American to win an Olympic snowboard event, Kimtexted her that it's time to be a dragon.
Kim was so good at age 13, she might have won the Sochi Olympics had she been old enough.
Kim provided an exclamation point to her coronation as the queen of snowboarding and, really, of these Olympics, scoring 98.25 at Phoenix Snow Park to beat China's Liu Jiayu by a whopping 8.5 points (consider that 6.5 points separated second through fourth place).
In her Olympic debut, the 17-year-old American was at another level from all other boarders, many of whom opted for safe runs, putting down a sequence of tricks which none could match before landing her signature back-to-back 1080s on her victory lap. She was 11 years and 302 days old. She secured her spot with a strong second run that had ideal pacing and control in the halfpipe at Phoenix Snow Park.
"There is a lot of pressure revolving around these games", she said.
She didn't have to do it.
First, she explained exactly how she got so hangry before the halfpipe final.
She was well ahead of silver medalist Liu Jiayu of China, who earned 89.75 points and Arielle Gold of the USA who took bronze with 85.75.
In 2014, a month before the Olympics she could not attend, she took her first Winter X Games medal - a silver.
While TeamGB is still waiting for its first medal at the PyeongchangWinter Olympics, America has a new hero. "Chloe is mature beyond her years", Gold said.
"It was definitely a bittersweet position to be in when it was between me and Kelly for that bronze medal position", Gold said, noting that she looked up to Clark.
So far the U.S. has three gold medals, one silver and two bronze medals, landing in fifth place overall.
Tales of how Kim's biggest fan - her Seoul-based grandmother - boasts about Chloe's exploits over tea to her fellow church-goers melted hearts.
Jong Jin Kim moved to the United States in 1982 to pursue his engineering degree. He protested his innocence and vowed to clear his name."I want to fight to prove my innocence because I don't remember (taking the drug) and it's incomprehensible", he said in a statement.
On commenter wrote: "You wanna make me cry?"
According to data shared by Twitter, she had about 15,000 Twitter followers when she dropped into the halfpipe and then by the time she finished her run, she earned more than 100,000 new followers. On Saturday, she tweeted about eating churros and how it helped calm her nerves.
But deep down, she knows where the real thanks belonged. She spilled in the middle of her second run, which left her "kind of annoyed". "I don't know if I could do that if I was in his shoes, quit work and travel with our kid full time, leave your life behind". "I'm happy to have done that with the support of all my family members".
