She may be heading into her second Winter Olympics, but mark our words: Chloe Kim is just getting started. After taking an extended break from the sport, the 21-year-old snowboarder is back in action, recently winning her sixth consecutive competition since her debut last season. After clinching back-to-back world championships, Kim is a near shoo-in for the women’s halfpipe final at the 2022 Winter Olympics, where she’ll look to defend her Olympic title. You might remember Kim hitting back-to-back 1080s — an Olympic first — four years ago to take home the gold medal in women’s halfpipe. Looking ahead to Beijing, she’s got plenty of high-level tricks in her arsenal, including a switch 900 and an inverted 540 (also known as a McTwist). See her full schedule below.

Under the current halfpipe competition format, 25 snowboarders will compete in both qualification runs in a best-out-of-two scoring format. From there, the top 12 best scores advance to the final, which consists of three runs and follows the same structure: the best-scored run out of three will count toward the final results. In the finals, the athlete with the lowest score from qualifying will ride first, and so on, until everyone has had a chance to put down three runs.
