Free of stress, figure skater Kim Yu-na believes hard work will pay off
“This is my first competition in a long time, and I am concerned and excited at the same time,” said Kim, who also has a 2009 world championship to her credit. “I’ve put in a lot of hours to improve my conditioning and techniques. I will bear down extra hard for the competition.”
After sitting out the entire 2011-12 season while mulling over her future, Kim, 22, announced in July this year that she would return to competitive skating in 2012, with an eye on the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.
