Will it be a gold for Kim Yuna?

Even though I had to go to work last Wednesday, I didn’t fail to watch Kim Yuna’s performance for the 2010 Winter Olympics Women’s Figure Skating short program competition. It was shown live on the DMB channel of SBS.


^^Queen Yuna and Asada Mao practising for the free skating

The “Figure Queen” – as she’s called here in Korea – skated at exactly 1PM KST after her rival Asada Mao performed. She set a world record in the short program – 78.50 – which prompted the Korean announcer to say “Everyone, this isn’t the men’s competition.” I was glad to have recorded her program. I watched it over and over again on my way home from work. Too bad that Youtube deletes videos of the Olympic coverage right away but here’s one posted at Daum: Kim Yuna’s short program at the 2010 Winter Olympics from SBS and NBC (in English). Here’s Asada Mao’s short program from SBS (Korean).

Kim Yuna will go for the gold on Friday morning KST. She, along with the other top six athletes (three of which are ethnically Japanese), are in Group 4 of the Free skating competition. Here’s the schedule in KST (Korea time): Rachael Flatt at 1:06 PM; Ando Miki 1:13 PM; Kim Yuna 1:21 PM; Asada Mao 1:29 PM; Joannie Rochette 1:37 PM and Mirai Nagasu at 1:45 PM.
