During PyeongChang, a then-17-year-old Kim was accompanied by her father, Jong Jin Kim, and her mother, Boran Yun Kim, but in Beijing, she was only able to see them on a screen as she teared up with joy after her dominant win.
“I mean, they are my No. 1 fans,” she said of her parents.
“I always look forward to seeing their faces at the bottom of the pipe, cheering me on.”
Ahead of this year's Games, Kim released a minute-long video on Instagram that she dedicated to her parents. The video, titled “Always There,” showcased never-before-seen family home clips and special recreated moments.
Although her parents were miles away, she was still able to share this special moment with them.
