Who says you can't accomplish anything on an empty stomach?

Seventeen-year-old Chloe Kim of Long Beach, California, became an American hero early Tuesday morning when she won the gold medal in the women's snowboard halfpipe final, casually dropping two 1080s in her third and final run *even though she'd already to secured the win* to score an impressive 98.25. 

While this success — this Olympic dream realized — would be a lot for any athlete to process, Chloe had other things on her mind during the competition: FOOD. 

In between her second and third runs, she felt obligated to let the world where her head was really at:

(Is she the most relatable gold medalist ever, or is she the most relatable gold medalist ever?)

By the way, that wasn't the only grub-related tweet she'd sent out over the past few days:

One fan called her out for tweeting mid-competition, and she totally owned up to it:

According to ESPN reporter T.J. Quinn, Kim later said: "Like, what else are you supposed to do?" when asked why she was tweeting during the competition. 😂

At this point, virtually everyone on the internet is in love with our hangry snow queen:

I had a rough childhood. I watched my parents murdered right before my eyes. Shot point-blank by some two-bit thug.

So I ran away from Gotham and wandered the earth, until eventually Liam Neeson found me in an obscure Asian jail. He gave me a home, taught me to fight, and showed me the true meaning of justice meant wearing black rubber latex and speaking really deeply. 

Then I killed him with a flying commuter train.
