The return of the queen is imminent.

Kim Yuna, who is returning to the ice after 20 months, will be leaving for Dortmund, Germany on Wednesday.

 

 After Kim announced that she would be returning to competition in August, she prepared her new programs at Taereung Training Center under tight security. Kim’s technical elements were cemented during her elderly teenage years and now she is approaching the summit of artistic expression as well. Even though she has not competed for 2 years her solid technical elements and remarkable artistic abilities will help ensure that she will have little difficulty returning to competitive ice.

 

The only problem was enhancing her endurance and adapting to the changes in the technical requirements. “Even though Yuna trained hard before announcing her return in August, she pushed herself even further after making her decision public. She focused on building up her stamina for the NRW Trophy,” said All That Sports (ATS), Kim’s management.

 

After revealing that she would be leaving competitive skating after the Sochi Winter Olympics, Kim disclosed that she would be skating to ‘The Kiss of the Vampire’ for her short program and ‘Les Miserables’ for her free skate. Both programs have not been revealed yet.

 

Both of Kim’s new programs will be unveiled on the day of the competition. “Yuna started practicing her long program, ‘Les Miserables’ first. She began to rehearse her short program, ‘The Kiss of the Vampire’ after finishing the ice show that was held in August,” said ATS. 

 

 

 

 

200D3B4150BE1BD2195E8FKim’s free program ‘Les Miserables’ is gathering much attention since the reveal of her new program coincides with the release of the movie of the same name. Kim focused on perfecting her free program in order to portray the grandeur and solemnity of the program.

 

In order to get used to the changes in technical requirements Kim also polished her spins and worked hard on her jumps. She also focused on refining her new programs.

 

Kim’s goal at the NRW Trophy is to earn the minimum required technical scores (TES: Technical Element Score). She will also concentrate on getting used to competing again. “Everything is going smoothly according to plan. Yuna trained hard to get though the competition without encountering any serious accidents,” said ATS.  

 

Top tier skaters will not be participating at the NRW Trophy. The competition is an ideal choice for a comeback because there will be less pressure for Kim.

Her goal for this season is the World Championships that will be held in March.  She needs to get the minimum requirement scores in order to compete at Worlds and this will be her main focus at the NRW Trophy.

 

There was a commotion on Tuesday caused by an image posted on Facebook. An image that announced Kim’s comeback and portrayed her new programs was posted on Kim’s Facebook page. News media that did not know that the page was run by a fan authorized by Kim’s agency, posted incorrect articles that Kim herself had posted the image. The image was actually made by a fan of Kim’s.

 

 “The only online site that Yuna actually posts in person is her Twitter account. Her Facebook page is run by her fans and the image that was posted on the site was also made by fans,” explained ATS.
