Women's freestyle skiing halfpipe debuted Thursday night.
American Maddie Bowman took the event’s first ever gold medal.
Bowman started her career as a ski racer but left that sport because it was too serious. Now she's an Olympic champion.
"I don't know if I thought it was gonna happen. I know me and everyone out there hoped and, hoped and dreamed that it would happen and then it did, and it's unbelievable,” said Bowman.
