1. She’s a Guinness World Record Holder.
For the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, she had a total score of 228.56 - the highest score since the creation of the ISU Judging System, registering her in the Guinness World Records.
She skated this James Bond medley for her short program in the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, setting a new world record of 78.50 points!!!
4. She’s a great Ice Dancer as well…
7. Even other Olympic skaters fangirl over her.
Gracie Gold: “I finally got a picture with Yuna!!!! #fangirling”
Polina Edmunds: “Yellow wassuppp. Yay for an official picture with the amazing Yuna Kim! #sochi2014 #yunakim #queenyuna”
10. But she uses her fortune wisely and generously.
To say Yuna is a philanthropist would be an understatement. Yuna was appointed a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador in 2010 and has used her fame & fortune to help those in need across the globe, including relief efforts in Haiti, Japan, and the Philippines. This past year, she donated her entire prize reward of $100,000 to the victims of the typhoon in the Philippines. Read more about her humanitarian work here and here.
So with warmest regards…
Thank you for gracing us with your beautiful skating.
