Chloe Kim cemented her status as the next American Olympic star with her dominating performance in the ladies' halfpipe.

Kim nailed her first of three runs in the final and then coasted to her first gold medal at just 17 years old. Later, with the gold medal already locked up, she threw down back-to-back 1080s becoming the first woman to do so in the Olympics and scoring a nearly perfect 98.25.

Not only was the performance dominant, it was also visually stunning. Below, we collected 15 of the best photos from photographers for Getty, Reuters, and the Associated Press.
