When Topps‘ new Winter Olympics card set arrives next Friday, it will feature one new athlete who’ll likely become a household name with her autographs in big demand once the action begins.
She’s Chloe Kim and she’s a 17-year-old already being called the “new face of American snowboarding” who is “poised to become the most-famous Korean-American female athlete in history” according to Bleacher Report writer Joon Lee.
But don’t take his word for it.
“Watching her at a young age was like watching Shaun White,” said Tommy Czeschin, a former coach with U.S. Snowboarding, in the story. “She was leaps and bounds better than anyone her age, her height, anyone she would ride with.”
