After a nearly flawless free skate Saturday, Kim Yu-na stepped off the ice and sat down next to coach Brian Orser in the kiss-and-cry, knowing full well that she would be skating away with the gold medal at the Trophee Bompard in Paris.
She had blown away the competition with a clean performance in the short program Friday, separating herself from the rest of the field at the Grand Prix event.
However, as the judges’ scores were revealed, both Kim and Orser got a very big surprise, not that she had won – that was already all but certain ― but that her overall score of 210.93 was a new world record.
Not bad for her first competition of the season.
