Yuna Kim, who recently appeared on U-Kids and announced her recent situation
Let’s find out what property and newlywed life are like so far.
Kim Yeon Ah?
As a former national figure skater from South Korea, she is a gold medalist in women’s singles figure skating at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics and a silver medalist in women’s singles figure skating at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics.
Yuna Kim’s Career
Yuna Kim first encountered skating in 1996 and began her full-fledged career as an athlete at the recommendation of coach Ryu Jong-hyeon, who recognized her talent. Since elementary school, he has shown his talent from an early age by winning various domestic figure skating competitions including the National Winter Sports Festival, and at the age of 12, the youngest among Korean figure skaters, he performed 5 types of triple jumps (toloop, salchow, loop, flip, lutz ) . completed.
She achieved an unprecedented “all-podium” record for a female single. Since her days as Novice, she has never been pushed out of third place in domestic and international competitions, and this is an unprecedented record in the history of figure skating women’s singles. From the beginning of figure skating like this, he showed outstanding talent enough to compete for first and second place in international competitions, but he suffered from injuries and huge training costs (figure skating is one of the most expensive sports. 100% self-pay, the Skating Federation supports only the Taereung Ice Rink, which is not well heated. In addition, in the past, the Korea Skating Federation took 30% of the prize money), and suffered a lot from problems such as a barren environment.
The first Korean player to win an ISU-sanctioned international competition (won the 2004 JGP Hungary with a total score of 148.55), win the 2006 Junior World Championship, and set a world record in the short program at the 2007 World Championship in the first season of his senior debut, but there was no proper sponsorship.
This is because the companies that sponsored Nam Na-ri in the past lost money as she was sluggish due to an injury before the marketing effect was seen. Also, female figure skaters do not have a longer career than athletes in other figure skating events, and many players with abundant potential end their careers at once due to injuries.
Because of that, companies were reluctant to sponsor Kim Yuna despite her splendid award-winning career until the second year of her senior debut. However, she eventually overcame all her difficulties with her own efforts and talents and consistently achieved good results in international competitions.
From her second year of senior, she was able to train in a better environment with sponsorship from various companies. She and she continued to write the history of her figure skating, breaking the world records she set herself. Now that she has retired, from a career point of view, she has accomplished everything she could have accomplished as the first Grand Slammer in figure skating women’s singles and the top figure skater.
The only thing I haven’t achieved in my career is a season sweep during my senior days. Officially, there are many figure skating celebrities and figure skating fans who recognize Kim Yu-na as her second Olympic gold medal, both internally and externally, although it is not official. Other than that, all sorts of records (the first player with a total score of 200, 210, 220 points, 11 world records, the first with a jump bonus of 2 points, the first with a 9 or 10 component point, etc.), Grand Slam, All-Podium, etc. as a player It can be said that everything that can be achieved has been achieved. In particular, her second consecutive Olympic gold medal is a very good result.
In addition, due to the nature of the sport of figure skating, a slight mistake often leads to a podium drop, so it is actually incredibly difficult to win a prize in every competition. To the point where there is even a saying that figure skating is a ‘battle for decimals’. Kim Yuna won medals so easily that many people view international competition as water, but most athletes retire without even winning a bronze medal during their career, which averages 7-8 years. The Olympic record, too, is undoubtedly a really great record when considering the fact that Kim Yu-na was clean in both Olympics, the judging controversy in Sochi, and the Olympic medalists since the 1990s, the era of full-fledged triple jumps.
At the 2009 World Championships, she set a new world record and was praised as a figure skating queen by legends of figure skating who watched her on the spot. Her short program <The Dance of Death> at this time is talked about as a legendary performance enough to receive great praise from Sonya Bianghetti, the godmother of figure skating. She and the following season, at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, she won the gold medal in figure skating for the first time in Korean figure skating history, making her the Olympic champion. After the Olympics, she was named one of the “Time 100” by Time magazine.
