By the third and final run of Sunday's event, it was already clear that Kim would take gold, but she still did back-to-back 1080 tricks, scoring an impressive 98.25.

At age 15, Kim made history when she became the first woman to land back-to-back 1080s at the US Snowboarding Grand Prix, scoring a perfect 100.

And if that wasn't enough to prove Kim is the coolest ever, she tweeted the most relatable thing in between her second and third runs at the halfpipe finals: "Wish I finished my breakfast sandwich but my stubborn self decided not to and now I'm getting hangry."

Wish I finished my breakfast sandwich but my stubborn self decided not to and now I'm getting hangry

It wasn't even the first time Kim has tweeted about her Olympics cravings. Just yesterday, she tweeted about wanting ice cream.

Could be down for some ice cream rn

People called her out for tweeting while competing, which she acknowledged she was.

She also tweeted about eating churros, which she recommends "if you ever get nervous." Thanks for the tip!

Oh and I also had 2 churros today and they were pretty bomb so if you ever get nervous go eat a churro

"Chloe Kim is all of us."

"I'm hangry rn too."

I’m hangry rn too. Me and @chloekimsnow have so much in common.

Some were curious about the gold medalist's sandwich of choice.

@chloekimsnow Are we talking bacon egg and cheese or what?

And hoped that after winning gold, she would get to eat that breakfast sandwich.

Chloe Kim gets gold!!!!! And hopefully a breakfast sandwich

Others suggested that the sandwich was the prize.

The rest of that breakfast sandwich was at the bottom of the halfpipe on Chloe Kim's third run I guess

And some were just proud they could eat a sandwich or two while watching.

Chloe Kim- 17 years old, Olympic gold medalist Liz Anderson-18 years old, just finished her second BLT sandwich

So whether it's a breakfast sandwich or a gold medal that you want, here's to all your dreams coming true!
