The day we’ve all been waiting for is here!

Figure skater, Kim Yuna set foot at the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics and is ranked no.1 in the ladies short program!

There is an incredible amount of pressure on her as she carries the weight of the entire nation on her shoulders to win the gold medal. I’m surprised she hasn’t cracked under pressure yet!

Yuna was the 23rd skater to perforn, and just before her was Japanese figure skater Asada Mao, who is constantly overshadowed by Yuna as well as being her biggest rival. Asada Mao had a short moment of victory by being ranked no.1 for a few minutes with her impressive score of 73.78, but Yuna kept her steady composure which lead her to receive a score of 78.50, and another new world record!

In case you missed it, check out the performances below:
