With the Sochi Winter Olympics coming ahead, ‘Ice queen’ Kim Yuna(24) said on the 14th  “I will finish the last festival without too much burden.” 

At the Sochi Winter Olympics ice national team media day held at the Taereung International Skating Rink, Gongneung-dong, Nowon-gu, Seoul, Kim Yuna said, “After this game is done, my life as an athlete will come to an end. My attitude is different from the Vancouver Olympics 4 years ago.”

She added, “Many people are talking about a gold medal and 2 successive defeats, but personally I am not thinking of that at all. Whatever the result may be, I will finish it with satisfaction and with no regrets.”

Kim Yuna herself says that she will not care about the results but her chances of winning seem high. Even the International Olympic Committee (IOC) forecasted that “In 26 years since Germany’s Katarina Witt(1984,1988) gained 2 successive defeats in the Olympics, Kim Yuna will finally succeed her.”

She added “I will manage the schedule just like I have been doing during training. I will improve shortcomings found in the two previous competitions (Golden Spin of Zagreb, the all-around championship) and raise the level of completion so that I can perfect my program.”

On her condition, she showed confidence by saying “My condition is very well. During practices I have managed the program without mistakes, so I have confidence. I am ready for the Olympics.”

Kim Yuna’s free skating theme music is the Argentina tango master Astor Piazzolla’s ‘Adios Nonino’. Regarding this she expressed her distress about unraveling the piece artistically by saying “while practicing, because of its genre, I cannot help but use force for every movement. It's physically much more demanding than soft music. There is a lot of pressure since I have never done a fierce music in free skating. I wondered why I had picked this when I could have gone the easier way.”

After the Sochi Winter Olympics, Kim Yuna will retire from her life as an athlete and challenge herself to be in the International Olympic Committee (IOC) athlete committee.
