Yuna Kim, “The long wait was difficult. I want do skate early and rest”
[IS plus] 2011-04-30 



Q: Were you nervous because this was your season debut?

“I didn’t think I was nervous but the first jump must have been more of a burden than I thought.
I was nervous while I was waiting for my scores because I missed my first jump. 
I panicked a bit because it was an unexpected mistake. 
I was also nervous because I didn't know how the other skaters skated before me. But after seeing my scores I felt better.”



 
Q: Why did you pick ‘Giselle’?

“It was difficult to pick a new program because my Olympic programs were so good.
David Wilson recommended ‘Giselle’ and I listened to it. I liked it and decided to do it.”
[Note: It is written as ‘Brian Wilson’ in the original. The reporter must have made a mistake. 
Here we wrote is as David since other articles have said that David Wilson suggested ‘Giselle’.]
 


 
Q: After you missed your first combination jump (Triple lutz-triple toe loop) you added a double toe to your second jump.

“I had done clean run-throughs in Korea but I wasn’t perfect in the competition. 
But I tried to concentrate on my remaining program and added a double toe loop to my triple flip. 
At first I thought of at least adding a single toe after the triple lutz but my landing was too bad to do so. 
So I added a double toe loop after the triple flip. I planned to add a triple toe if my flip landing was good but it wasn’t so I added a double.
I practice adding toe loop jumps after my flip just in case ( I make a mistake).”



 
Q: You already have the Olympic gold. Why did you return to competition? 

“ I wanted to show my fans new programs and new characters. 
To tell the truth it was mentally difficult to return to competition. 
It was hard to shake off ‘Why do I have to do this?’ while I was training. 
After a while it became ‘Now it’s all right’ and I started training again.”



 
Q: You are the 21st skater(3rd in Group 4) in the free skate

“I’m very satisfied with the order. I want to skate early. Today it was difficult waiting so long. I want to skate early and rest.”
