17-year-old Californian Chloe Kim made history yesterday as the youngest woman ever to win an Olympic gold medal in snowboarding. Unsurprisingly, this incredible feat was achieved with the help of our powerful and formidable guiding light, Lady Gaga. 

Speaking to ESPN, Kim revealed that on her first run, she listened to Gaga's "Paparazzi," and on her second run, "Motorsport," featuring Nicki Minaj and Cardi B, landing herself a winning final score of 98.25.

Kim competed for the first time in the Pyeongchang Olympics after being skilled enough but too young to compete in the previous Sochi Olympics. She was able to achieve victory despite pressure from both America and South Korea, where her parents grew up and much of her extended family still resides.
