‘Ice Queen’ Yu-na Kim(23) became the champion of her first event of the season, “2013 Golden Spin of Zagreb” on December 8, with a total score of 204.49, combining 73.37 in the short program and 131.12 at free skating. Miki Ando (Japan, 176.82), who has also been recording high scores after giving birth to a girl, came in second place, and the rising star of Russia, Elizaveta Tuktamysheva (Russia, 169.24) came in third.

Yu-na Kim’s scores exceeded 200 in four events in a row: She recorded 201.61 at the NRW Trophy in December last year, 210.77 at a national skating competition held in Korea this January, and 218.31 at the World Figure Skating Championships this March.

For her free skating program, Kim chose a grave tango piece, “Adios Nonino (Farewell Father).” Kim performed passionately in a black dress, expressing the sorrow of missing father, and proudly grabbed the gold medal once again after having won it with her short program from the day before.

Although she fell on her first jump, triple lutz-triple toe loop combination (base value: 10.10 points), the mistake didn’t hold her back. She added an impromptu double toe loop after a triple lutz to buoy her score.

After calmly averting the crisis, Kim performed with an ease, scoring 60.60 points in TES (Total Elements Score) and 71.52 points in PCS (Program Components Score) with 1-point deduction for a total of 131.12, the highest score of the day.

Yu-na Kim, who unveiled her short program “Send in the Clowns” and “Adios Nonino” for free skating, definitely made her presence with an overwhelming victory even though she hadn’t recovered to the best physical condition yet from the injury in September.

At the gala show, which was held in dawn Korean time, Kim staged “Imagine,” which she first unveiled in June at an Ice Show in Korea.
