Kim Yu Na: The Queen of the Ice

It's my habit to turn on the tv as soon as I wake up. Last Saturday, I was so lucky to see the performance of the Queen of the Ice, Kim Yuna at the World Figure Skating Championships that was held in Los Angeles. Her performance was really amazing! She did great so there was a standing ovation after the people see how she performed. They were so entertained no wonder why she got a higher score. Her score was the World Best Record and it's almost 10 points higher than the one who is next to her. Here's the score of the first five for the short performance.

1. Kim Yuna (Korea) = 76.12
2. Joannie Rochette (Canada) = 67.90
3. Mao Asada (Japan) = 66.06
4. Ando Miki (Japan) = 64.12
5. Carolina Kostner (Italy) = 63.14

The next day (Sunday), I waited for her another long performance so again, I was amazed of her ability. It's not only me but all of her audiences did. What do we expect more? She got the World Best Record with her score of more than 200 points.

So here's the Final Result of the ISU World Figure Skating Championship 2009

1. Kim Yuna (Korea) = 207.71
2. Joannie Rochette (Canada) = 191.29
3. Miki Ando (Japan) = 190.38
4. Mao Asada (Jap) = 188.09
5. Rachael Flatt (U.S.A.) = 172.41
6. Laura Lepisto (Fin) = 170.07
7. Alena Leonora (Rus) = 168.91
8. Fumie Suguri (Jap) = 164.58
9. Sarah Meier (Sui) = 163.37
10. Elene Gedevanishvili (Geo) = 162.48
11. Alissa Czisny (U.S.A.) = 159.78
12. Carolina Kostner (Ita) = 153.56

Gold Medalist: Kim Yuna

She's crying while singing the Korean National Anthem. She also made me cry but those are the tears of joy.

Look! Isn't she so pretty? Even when she cried?
