Chloe Kim is starring tonight in Pyeongchang.

It has been a very good Olympics for 17-year-old U.S. snowboarders so far.

First, Red Gerard won gold on Saturday night. It was the first American gold medal of the 2018 Winter Olympics.

Now, Chloe Kim might be in line to join Gerard with a gold medal before her 18th birthday.

Kim, who has been a snowboarder her whole life, crushed her first run on the halfpipe.

Kim scored a 93.75, which vaulted her into first place. Her night isn't over, but she's off to a flying start.

You can watch her entire run below. It's awesome.

Can another U.S. teenager win gold?

You can catch the rest of Kim's night plus more Olympic coverage on NBCOlympics.com and the NBC networks.
