Super-Groms are nothing new to snowboarding. They’re usually backed to the hilt by sports marketing executives and fiercely promoted by loving parents. However, a relatively unknown 13-year old storming the podium at one of America’s biggest half-pipe competitions? Enter Chloe Kim.

The young American threw down heavy McTwists and back to back 7s to claim the third place at Breckenridge in December, finishing just a point behind female snowboarding legend, Kelly Clark.

Though too young to compete at Sochi we reckon Kim shows that if you’re good enough, you’re old enough.
