Olympic Champion Chloe Kim Named 2018 Sportswoman of the Year

LOS ANGELES (January 11, 2019) - Olympic gold medal snowboarder and L.A.-native Chloe Kim has been selected 2018 Sportswoman of the Year by the Los Angeles Sports Council.

She will be honored at the 14th annual LA Sports Awards, to be held on Monday, March 25 at The Beverly Hilton.

Born in Long Beach and raised in Torrance, Calif., Kim started on a snowboard at 4 years old and cut her teeth on the SoCal slopes at places like Mountain High.

Competing in her first Winter Games last February in Pyeongchang, South Korea - her parents' birth country - Kim won the women's halfpipe, and at age 17 became the youngest female ever to win an Olympic snowboarding medal.

With victory already secured, on her third and final run of the competition Kim dazzled viewers by successfully landing her signature move - back-to-back 1080-degree spins, an extremely difficult and dangerous maneuver. It earned her a near-perfect score of 98.25 points.

Her Olympic triumph landed her on the cover of Sports Illustrated and on the front of a Kellogg's Corn Flakes cereal box, each considered iconic status for any athlete.

The LA Sports Awards are presented annually by the Sports Council to celebrate the year in sports in the Los Angeles/Orange County area.

The Los Angeles Sports Council is a non-profit civic organization whose primary purpose is to promote economic development through sports in the Los Angeles/Orange County area.

On behalf of the community, the Sports Council bids against other cities for the right to host major sporting events, often staging or helping to stage events after successful bids.

Founded in 1988, the Sports Council's efforts represent more than $1 billion in overall economic impact for the region and range from NCAA Championships to the Super Bowl, and from the U.S Olympic Trials to the World Cup.

The Council also works in support of each of the area's established sports teams and facilities.
