Fans waiting to catch a glimpse of Yuna Kim (above) were disappointed
Korean skating star Yuna Kim wasn’t doing interviews prior to her free skate for gold Saturday.
At the Western Fair practice rink, spectators wanted to catch a glimpse of her and maybe get an autograph, but she was nowhere to be found after her practice.
Her talent is obvious, even during a practice session. She skates with such grace and beauty.
Yuna Kim was on the ice with Canadian Kaetlyn Osmond, sitting in fourth, and Japanese skaters Kanako Murakami, in third, and Mao Asada, sitting fourth.
For Osmond, the 17-year-old from Marystown, Nfld., it was a dream come true to be out there.
“I admire so many people I was just on the ice with,” she said after her training.
She’s also excited about her placement going into the free skate but is trying not to think about it.
“Being in fourth right now, it’s a little hopeful maybe (for a medal), but I’m trying not to think about it much.
The women hit the Budweiser Ice Saturday at 7 p.m.
