History continues to be made at the 2018 Winter Olympics.

For those who missed out on NBC’s prime-time coverage of the games Monday evening, Team USA member Chloe Kim picked up a major win that deserves plenty of recognition.

While appearing in the women’s halfpipe, Chloe exceeded expectations and earned the biggest score of the competition with a near-perfect 98.25 total.

The tally earned the Southern California native resident a gold medal.  And yes, the 17-year-old made history by becoming the youngest woman to medal in snowboarding.

“I worked so hard to get to this point and just coming here and being able to land was my main goal,” Chloe shared with NBC Sports after her big win. “I was so happy I could do it and take home the gold.”

She added, “My family has sacrificed so much for me and accomplish this dream of mine. Being able to do that in their home country is amazing.”

In between her second and third runs, Chloe even had some time to tweet to her loyal fans and followers. Before you think she was stressed beyond belief, you may want to read her tweet.

“Wish I finished my breakfast sandwich but my stubborn self decided not to and now I’m getting hangry,” she shared. LOL!

Before Chloe receives some food, we have a feeling she won’t mind waiting a few more minutes to accept her gold medal.

“I just couldn’t believe. It was such an amazing feeling,” Chloe explained after her win. “I was really happy to land my third run.”

Now let’s get the superstar athlete some grub!

Tune in to NBC to watch the Winter Olympics.

Your Instagram feed just got a major upgrade thanks to the one and only Kylie Jenner

After months of recycled selfies, cryptic clues and not a Snapchat selfie in sight, the cosmetics queen and new mom has finally ended her social media hiatus. Kylie returned to the ‘gram on Monday evening with a sassy snapshot that had her 103 million followers commenting in delight, “She’s baaaack!” 

In the caption-less photo, Kylie is in total glam mode as she poses behind the driver’s seat of her Bentley wearing a red Adidas tracksuit. The moment was seemingly captured by BFF Jordyn Woods, and was taken during yesterday’s outing to their close friend Heather Sander‘s baby shower.

Jenner, who gave birth to daughter Stormi Webster almost two weeks ago, just made Instagram history with her previous photo of the newborn. With more than 16 million likes, Kylie and Stormi beat out Beyoncéto become the most-liked Instagram photo of all time. 

Social media milestones aside, Kylie continues to fall more in love with her and Travis Scott‘s daughter every day. 

As a source recently described to E! News, “Kylie is tired but getting used to the crazy hours. She is very attached to Stormi. She honestly just never wants to leave her out of her sight not because she can’t trust anyone but because she just is so happy being with her baby.”

We’re told Kylie’s “main focus” is Stormi, and is easing back into post-baby life by “eating healthy and taking care of herself.” 

Of course, an Instagram selfie never hurt every now and then! Welcome back, Ky.
