Team USA's 17-year-old snowboarding wunderkind Chloe Kim may be an Olympics newbie, but on Feb. 12 she took home the gold medal in the women's halfpipe finals with a set of absolutely staggering scores (93.57 and 98.25, anyone?). Kim's absolutely charming, understated demeanour totally captured our hearts — so, naturally, a tweet she sent about a breakfast sandwich between her second and third runs straight-up set the internet ablaze.
Wish I finished my breakfast sandwich but my stubborn self decided not to and now I'm getting hangry

That's right; as she was in the process of winning a gold medal, the high-schooler took a quick break in Pyeongchang to tweet about how she was getting hangry. And boy did that make us love her even more than we already did back when we just knew she was a huge fan of churros. Chloe Kim, you are officially the hero we all need right now.
Below, check out some of the best of the internet's reactions to Kim's glorious tweet.

Tweeting this in the middle of your Olympic final is as boss a move as boss moves come https://t.co/kguVkNMx1h

Gotta love that Chloe Kim is posting Tweets DURING her halfpipe competition. It helps that she's leading by, like, 10,000 points. https://t.co/M16W9UE6Pt

Casually locked in the gold medal 15 minutes after this tweet https://t.co/73XfLfd3ZQ

Chloe Kim had the gold locked up after her second run, then went out and dropped a 98.25 just for the hell of it — and did it without finishing her breakfast.

I totally relate to this minus the "and then I won a gold medal right after this tweet" part https://t.co/BcP4ptFuX5
