Yu-Na Kim interview in English in NYC (October 2010)
Yu-Na Kim attended the 31st Annual Salute to Women in Sports which was held at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City. From http://www.lifeskate.com/skate/2010/10/yu-na-kim-honored-and-inspired-video.html. This is an event hosted by the Women's Sports Foundation, an organization founded by legendary tennis great Billie Jean King to help and inspire young girls everywhere to reach their dreams. In all, more than 60 world-class athletes from track and field to golf to swimming to snowboarding -- you name the sport, the crème de la crème were there -- came together under one roof to celebrate women's accomplishments and contributions to sports.
Figure skating was well represented by Yu-Na Kim, Michelle Kwan and Sarah Hughes. Interestingly, Michelle is a past recipient of a Women's Sports Foundation scholarship so this organization is near and dear to her heart. Here is my conversation with Yu-Na and we talk about her recent move to Los Angeles from Toronto, her coaching change from Brian Orser to Peter Oppegard, and her idol Michelle Kwan. Yu-Na was also nominated for Sportswoman of the Year and she won later in the evening! See complete coverage of Yu-Na Kim at: http://www.lifeskate.com/skate/yu-na-kim/
