Kim Yuna wins Olympic Gold in Vancouver!

The figure skating goddess Kim Yuna has met all expectations and won gold at the Vancouver Winter Olympic Games after a flawless free skate program.

With the pressure of a nation on her, Yuna delivered with a World Record setting short program score of 78.50 two days earlier.

Tonight, she gave a stellar free skate performance, dazzling the judges who gave her a score of 150.06, another new world record, and shattering the 200 point mark that she first beat only last year, but tonight with a score of 228.56.

Her free skate program included a triple lutz triple toeloop combination, a triple flip, a double axle double toeloop double flip, and countless other gravity defying moves.

With this gold medal, South Korea gained its 11th medal of the games. Japan’s Asada Mao claimed the silver medal with 205.50 points while Canada’s Joannie Rochette got the bronze with a score of 202.64.
