Chloe Kim, 13, has become the youngest snowboarder to rank as No. 1 in the world.

Born in Long Beach, Calif., Kim began snowboarding when she was four years old and entered the United States of America Snowboard Association’s national championship race by age 6.

In January, she competed at the X Games held in Aspen, Colo., where she won the silver medal in the snowboard halfpipe. At the Burton U.S. Open in March, she came in third at slopestyle.

City Council President Herb Wesson and Councilman Tom Labonge presented Kim with a commemorative certificate on Wednesday and declared it “Chloe Kim Day.” 

Kim, a member of the U.S. snowboarding team, did not qualify for the 16-and-over age limit for this year’s Sochi Winter Olympics but plans to participate in the 2018 Pyongchang Winter Olympics.
