Korean Skater Kim Yu-na Dazzles at Winter Olympics

leave a comment »

Figure skater Kim Yu-na is the biggest celebrity in South Korea. She is so hounded by reporters, photographers and the public that she trains in Toronto, Canada.

Favored to win gold at this year’s Winter Olympics, Yu-na is in first place with a record-breaking score of 78.50 after tonight’s short program. As she skated a flawless and saucy routine to a selection of James Bond tunes, the commentator noted that the rivalry with Japanese figure skater, Mao Asada, currently in second place, reflected historical hostilities between the two countries — kinda like when Mexico plays USA in a soccer match.

Yes, indeed, if Yu-na wins gold at this year’s Winter Olympics, there will be bedlam in the streets of Seoul.
