Chloe Kim gets shoutout from Reese Witherspoon after winning gold
Chloe Kim was one of the biggest stories at the Winter Olympics on Tuesday when she dominated the women’s halfpipe to take home a gold medal, and the 17-year-old has to be pretty stoked about one of the shout-outs she got on Twitter.
NBC Olympics tweeted an awesome photo of one of the stunts that helped Kim win the halfpipe event, and even actress Reese Witherspoon couldn’t help but admire it.

Witherspoon was likely referring to the popular Idina Menzel song “Defying Gravity,” which is the signature song from the Broadway musical “Wicked.” After what we saw on Tuesday, it is a pretty fitting anthem for Kim.
In addition to being ridiculously good at snowboarding, Kim has also endeared fans with her great sense of humor during the Olympics. We’re not surprised they’re taking note in Hollywood, too.
