Yuna Kim Sheds Tears After Hanging Up Ice Skates

Yuna Kim wipes the tears from her face during a press conference after her farewell ice show held at Olympic Gymnastics Stadium on Tuesday night (May 6) in Seoul, South Korea.

“I’m officially ending my career as an athlete here,” she shared during the press conference. “I have been really happy.”

Yuna added, “I want to take a good rest after this event. Getting ready for this show has kept me busy. I have received more love and support than I deserve.”
