South Korea's newly-crowned Olympic figure skating champion Kim Yu-Na warned that there is more to come as she gave one of the greatest Olympic performances of all time on her way to gold in Vancouver.
Japanese figure skating star Mao Asada says she is looking ahead to next month's world championships, despite losing to South Korean rival Kim Yu-Na at the Vancouver Olympics.
Mirai Nagasu's face lit up when she saw her ranking after the women's free skate. Fourth place. No medal. Usually a catalyst for tears at the Olympics. But to the 16-year-old American, it might be the foundation for some better finishes in the future.
Kim Yu-Na gave South Korea their first Olympic figure skating title here on Thursday grabbing gold with a record setting free skate and short program total. Japan's Mao Asada landed two triple axels but it wasn't enough to knock Kim off the top.
Brian Orser, coach of Olympic gold medal favourite Kim Yu-Na, said Wednesday he would never underestimate the threat posed by 'feisty' Japanese skater Mao Asada.
