Chloe Kim took second in the women’s half pipe snowboard qualifier rankings, but can’t represent the US in Sochi for the 2014 Winter Olympics. The problem? At 13, she is too young. Qualifiers need to be 15 by the end of 2013. Chloe says that she isn’t disappointed not be going.
“I think I would be really nervous and pressured. I’m glad that I’m not old enough, almost.”
She and her family are said to be looking forward to the 2018 Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Chloe’s family immigrated to California from South Korea and go back to visit regularly from their home in Southern California.
