yu-na kim



Yu-Na Kim, the reigning World Champion, also known as the Queen, is a S. Korean figure skater who just won the Gold Medal in the Vancouver Olympics. She is one of my favorite athletes to watch and I think she is absolutely gorgeous!!! Although some of my girl friends disagree, she reminds me of a young Gong Li [whom i think is the most elegant woman in the world]...one look can make your heart flutter. I've shown this clip to everyone that's online chatting with me, so i think it's about time i blog about her. Below is the video clip of the 007 Medley she did for the short program. She nails everything with precision, the jumps, the speed, and even the little nuances of sensuality!



I think I watched this clip about 100 times in the last 3 days. I saw her short program live on TV, and searched all over youtube to find the exact program. I hate NBC and their copyright crap, but thankfully, I was able to find this HD clip of the best short program skate I've ever seen.



This is the same 007 Medley skate, but they slow down her best parts, so I think it's worth a watch as well.
