21-year-old Chloe Kim shared her views on finding inspiration from Simone Biles. Chloe said, “Having that comfort knowing that, ‘Hey, I’m doing something really dangerous, or I’m doing something that is hard on my body, if I mentally can’t do it, then I shouldn’t. It’s in my best interest. Showing the world that you have to put yourself first and give up something like an Olympic gold medal, that was very touching and inspirational.”

 

 

Chloe competes in snowboarding, a sport that is always exposed to injuries. Throwing back to her winning her first Olympics, Chloe had made a shocking revelation about her medal.

Kim was adversely affected by the unwanted attention she was getting after her achievement. The young athlete just wanted to go back to her normal life, but could not as she was in the spotlight.
