American teenager Chloe Kim and Austrian ski ace Marcel Hirscher triumphantly lit up the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics Tuesday as the Games were hit by their first doping scandal.

Kim, who won the first snowboarding gold medal at the 2016 Winter Youth Olympics, decided her final run was the ideal time to show off her skills and produced an all out score of 98.25 in an awesome display that included back to back 1080 tricks.

A few women successfully landed the trick, but none could match Kim's score.

"I've only competed at the Olympics, and it's been an emotional experience watching other athletes in action", Jin said.

Leading up to these Olympics, Kim has been the subject of numerous features in the media.
