Olympic snowboarder Chloe Kim talks mental health, missing ‘the good teenage years’, and more on Kevin Hart’s “Cold As Balls”.
This week’s episode of Cold As Balls from Kevin Hart’s Laugh Out Loud features two-time Olympic Gold Medalist Chloe Kim as she joins Kevin to discuss mental health of athletes, being grateful for the opportunity to be at the Olympics, and how she began practicing at an extremely young age.
She also dishes on missing prom and all of the fun she had in college — as well as the fun she plans to have when she goes back.
Episode highlights include:
- Chloe talking about her mental health and all the expectations and pressures put on athletes, even stating that: “Some days I just can’t do it.” She emphasizes how grateful she was to even have been at the Olympics, and the importance of going out there and having fun.
- Chloe dishes on missing “the good teenage years” and never being able to go to prom because she was traveling and competing all the time.
- Chloe reminisces on how she became serious about snowboarding at age six, and how she was not allowed to go to the Olympics because she didn’t hit the age requirement, even though she qualified at age 13.
- Chloe tells Kevin her plans to go back to Princeton for a college experience after the 2022 Winter Olympics, and Kevin helps her practice with some good old fashioned ‘ice pong’ to get ready.
Season 5 of “Cold as Balls” premiered with Karl-Anthony Towns and has also featured Michael Strahan and Calvin Johnson. New episodes air every Tuesday on the Laugh Out Loud YouTube channel, Cold as Balls Facebook page, and Hart’s Facebook page.
