Teen snowboarding sensation Chloe Kim absolutely crushed the women’s halfpipe competition at the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics today, taking home the gold with a final score of 98.25 out of 100. Immediately after this historic victory, the 17-year-old Olympian from Long Beach, California had lunch on her mind. “I really want like a burger and some fries,” Kim said during a press conference. “Maybe some Hawaiian pizza.” The teen phenom was also spotted walking around the media village after the win with a chocolate mousse cup in her hand.
Since she arrived in South Korea last week, Kim has also kept tweeting about her various food cravings:

After seeing the dessert tweets, NBC’s food and culture correspondent David Chang came to the rescue with a plate of churro ice cream sandwiches for Kim:

Chloe is also an Olympic spokesperson for Oreos, which is fitting considering that her Instagram page includes photos of the athlete with sweet treats like giant doughnuts and ice-cream topped waffles.
