    qualifying lit up genting snow park and the final will be off the scale.

    Chloe Kim lived up to her billing as the favorite: She’s a defending Olympic champion, two-time world champion, and a six-time X Games champion, and she’s riding a six-fight win streak coming to Beijing.

    She’s having fun in China, too: “It’s like summer camp,” she said of the Olympic Village in Beijing, and she looks relaxed.

    Watch out for a surprise from her in the final, as she told olympics.com: “I guess I can’t tell you what I’m going to do, but I hope to achieve what I want to do. I try to focus on breadth as well as variety. I do my best to incorporate all four directions of spin, that’s the main thing I’ve worked on since the last olympics.

    “This is how I want to push snowboarding, I want to encourage people to turn in all four directions.”

    but if kim doesn’t land on the day there are plenty of others ready to lay siege to the top of the podium.

    Japan’s

    ono mitsuki qualified second and the 17-year-old is the 2020 Youth Olympics Snowboarding Champion, as was Chloe Kim in 2016.

    then there are the Chinese liu and cai, liu (29) is a silver medalist from pyeongchang four years ago, world champion in 2009 and has 23 podiums in world cups and 11 wins in her historic career.
