Do you ever crave dessert in the middle of your workday? What if your “workday” was snowboarding at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang? Chloe Kim, a 17-year-old Californian, tweeted about wanting ice cream during a qualifying halfpipe event on Monday.
Could be down for some ice cream rn— Chloe Kim (@ChloeKim) February 12, 2018
One fan asked if Kim was tweeting while competing. She replied “yes…” as if to say, “yeah, so what?”
yes…— Chloe Kim (@ChloeKim) February 12, 2018
Although Kim is clearly talented, she likely wasn’t snowboarding and tweeting at the same time. She probably sent the tweet while waiting her turn to compete. But the internet found Kim’s tweet funny and relatable.

NBC even conducted a Twitter poll about what kind of ice cream Kim should eat. Cookies and cream took the gold, which Kim replied is “some good stuff.”
Cookies & Cream is some good stuff. If anyone can get me some to the village thatd be dope— Chloe Kim (@ChloeKim) February 12, 2018
Kim qualified for the women’s halfpipe final, which airs Monday night at 8pm ET.
We hope someone buys her ice cream to celebrate. She’d probably also accept a churro.
Oh and I also had 2 churros today and they were pretty bomb so if you ever get nervous go eat a churro— Chloe Kim (@ChloeKim) February 11, 2018
