    My only worry for Chloe is injuries. Hopefully she doesn't get plagued like Lindsey did cause this girl can get us gold for 2 decades!!!!

      So I don’t know why you’re insisting that this video is promoting feminism when it is just about Chloe Kim who won gold for WOMEN’S snowboarding. It wasn’t like she was against any dudes or anything lol. Don’t be delusional and assume everything is about politics

    • Heather Swan
      Heather Swan 3 месяца назад

      Irrational feminists would even take fault in that women are separated from men in the Olympics. They’d argue for men and women to compete against each other

    • Heather Swan
      Heather Swan 3 месяца назад

      This has nothing to do with feminism. It’s snowboarding, and the men and the women athletes are divided bc obviously men (in average) are physically stronger than women.
      Btw, although Chloe is a woman, I bet she is more athletic (or at least a better snowboarder) than you since she is an Olympian after all. Not all girls are weaker than you. Just accept the fact that there are exceptionally strong women that can outperform a group of men who are relatively average. It’s okay- it doesn’t mean you’re weak.

    Why is everybody on her nuts right now ?
    Similar to shaun white
    Im not a shaun fan but what he did for snowboarding is unbelievable
    Everybody is making a big deal out of her 1080‘s
    Shaun was the first one to throw double corks on a regular basis in halfpipe
    The risk alone you have to take for that is crazy
    The comparison ist just disrespectful to Shaun
    And than again
    Who really cares about woman in any sport ? I wanna see the best of the best
    I‘d rather see a double cork 1440 than a 1080

      Im not comparing her to shaun white im using him as an analogy because she is so far beyond her years and the competition its not even close.... like shaun white for the past 13 years

      Steele Stevens in 2022 men might throw triple corks in a halfpipe so just accept that woman are stuck behind

    • Litty Titty
      Litty Titty 3 месяца назад

      Steele Stevens you are seriously blind
      Shaun white threw 1080‘s when he was 12
      Marcus kleveland did a QUAD cork when he was 17 so no she will never be anywhere close tl Shaun whites level

    "The snowboarder that makes the half pipe look easy".... you mean Shaun white hasn't been consistently killing it for years? The problem I've had with woman's side of sports is that they always seem to have half the impact and result that men do. It's not criticizing them at all, it's just stating the fact that their side of it is just straight boring to watch. The only thing interesting is woman's volleyball. I mean here you see that they literally go half as high as the guys do on their runs yet they show this off like she doing way more..... it's just boring.

    Awesome Chloe, u rock! And ur parents story of immigrating to the US is touching. For the rest of us, who are forced to be part of the US - whose homelands were overridden by Europeans, which I wish they would go back to their own country cuz they are like a virus spreading all over the world killing Mother Nature. Trump’s immigrant focus should include EVERY lineage since Columbus, who unintentionally ended up in North America. All of them should be deported for stealing lands that didn’t belong to them!
