Team USA and Team Toyota's Chloe Kim Wins Olympic Gold Medal

Toyota Motor North America is No. 34 on the DiversityInc Top 50 Companies list

In her first Olympic Winter Games appearance, Team USA and Team Toyota’s Chloe Kim finished first in the women’s halfpipe snowboarding event on Tuesday, February 13.


Kim completed two back-to-back 1080 spins in the halfpipe competition for a best score of 98.25 on her third and final run.

“This is the best outcome I could ever ask for and it’s been such a long journey,” said Kim. “Just going home with the gold is amazing.”

Kim is competing in her first Olympic Winter Games after missing the Olympic Winter Games Sochi 2014 due to age restrictions. She is the only athlete in X Games history to earn three gold medals before the age of 16 and is also credited as the first female to land back-to-back 1080s and to score a perfect 100 at the 2016 U.S. Grand Prix in Park City.

In March of 2015, the International Olympic Committee announced Toyota as a TOP (The Olympic Partner) Programme partner in the newly created mobility category through 2024. In addition to its relationship with the IOC, Toyota is also a Proud Partner of the International Paralympic Committee and Team USA and supports: the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Association; US Speedskating; U.S. Figure Skating; USA Hockey and the U.S. National Sled Hockey Team; U.S. Paralympics Alpine Skiing; U.S. Paralympics Nordic Skiing; and U.S. Paralympics Snowboarding.

Toyota launched its ‘Start Your Impossible’ campaign in November 2017, highlighting Toyota’s mission to create a barrier-free society and reinforce the company’s values of humility, hard work, overcoming challenges, and never giving up. Team Toyota highlights these values as its U.S. Olympic and Paralympic athletes serve to demonstrate the ultimate discovery of one’s true potential throughout the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.
