Queen Yuna Kim Leads After Stunning Short Program at Sochi Olympics

Queen of Figure Skating, Yuna Kim stuns the crowd silent up until the very end of her performance during the Figure Skating Ladies’ Short Program at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics held at Iceberg Skating Palace on Wednesday night (February 19) in Sochi, Russia.

The reigning Olympic gold medalist, who hasn’t competed in a major competition for two years, came back and claimed the top spot ahead of Russia’s Adelina Sotnikova and Carolina Kostner of Italy, who are 2nd and 3rd.

Russia’s upcoming superstar Yulia Lipnitskaya placed 5th after a fall during her triple flip.

Japan’s Mao Asada, who claimed silver at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, currently sits in 16th place after she fell on her opening jump, a triple axel.
