Yuna Kim

CommentsTopPopularNewest

As per Dick Button, I concur. "She never wilts". It is with that characteristic that even the lacking of sufficient flexibility, leg turn out or toe point won't hurt. She's not a pretentious skater and perhaps the greatest cerebral, introverted skaters ever. She's the type of skater that makes you think, as opposed to most of her contemporaries who lets it all out in terms of their routine. And her fiery competitive ability, technical skills and sophisticated artistry makes her every bit worthy of being called the Queen.

Johnny Werd before Yuna Kim? That's ridiculous. He's never won a World gold medal.

Kim was 2010 Olympics gold medalist by over 20 points over her nearest rival, the 2014 Olympics silver medalist (should have been gold, she was robbed by the biased judges in Russia). And she also has three World Championship gold medals.

She also holds the World record for the highest score given since the new scoring system was put in place over the 6.0 system.

Watch her speed, she's so fast and graceful on the ice. So far, no one can match her artistic ability and facial expression. You have to remember that figure skating is not just about the spins and jumps but the expression, I think kim yuna deserves to be higher on the list, I mean she's won many titles, and she broke the record!

No matter what result this vote ends up with (fair or not), no one, even among all the skaters who are on this list, can deny the respect that Kim Yuna deserves. She is already in deep down everyone's heart the Queen of figure skating, and this feeling will remain for years to come.

Popularity can never stay forever, but respect is something that lasts. Although Kim Yuna is still extremely popular, but what makes her stand out from the rest is the deep respect people all over the world have for her.

She is sorely missed on the figure skating scene today. Even though she has already retired, I have no doubt she will continue to surprise and inspire us in many ways in the future, and I cannot wait to see that. This is the kind of person Kim Yuna is.

Who is voting that she is not the best of all time? This woman kim yuna has won olympics already along w three consecutive world champ? And that is under today's much harder difficulty level, if she hits, she will do well. I want the best to win. I don't like the Russian cheated always. if kim sticks her routine, there is no one who can touch her, including the overrated Russian 15 yo who is over scored for having 0 height and artistry. but we all know that when ever the comp is in Russia, they will cheat. - sutherlandfan

Her jump technic is textbook perfect which allows her to have the consistency of a top competitor, the speed in and out of her jumps are lovely to see and not only does she go up but she goes across the ice. Beautiful jumps, beautiful speed across the ice, beautiful costumes... However her lines aren't so great, she needs to point her toes and fully extend her legs. Most of her choreography is arms and look pretty much the same. Her artistry and facial expressions are questionable as well.
She was destined to be one of the best figure skaters of her generation, yet near the end of her career she stagnated. Her jump layout wasn't pushing the boundaries of her sport, her spins still weak, choreography looked the same... It's too bad because she could have been one of the best figure skaters in the world.
I'm a huge fan of Yuna but she kept it safe for most of her career, sure it gave her a chance to medal and even win an OG but to mark yourself known as one of the best figure ...more

Yuna Kim is a truly phenomenon in figure skating. Her technical skills, speed, performance ability, emotional expressions, music choice, fashion sense and her personality are all almost perfect! Moreover, I do like the sound from her skating because it shows how professional and relaxed she is, even during major competitive tournaments; also, it does match the music very well. Some people said that Yuna looks so effortless when skating; but in my opinion, in order to be "effortless" like her, you have to have exceptional skills and spirit. Indeed, I could not see any ladies during Yuna Kim's era can have this "effortless" ability.

There will never be a skater like Yuna, a skater with the jumps, the spins, the skating skills, and most of all her brilliant ability to express the music. "Legend" is the one word I would use to express how amazing she is. There will never be a skater like her... ever.

NO need to explain long but, Yuna has it all, she is wonderful technician in skating such as jumps, spins, spirals, steps so on and especially she is the textbook of the edges of all six kinds of jumps with overwhelming speed, height and distance... Further, she is gorgeous, elegance, beautiful in her perfomances with appealing expressions... That's why she is called as 'Queen Yuna', The living queen on the ice...

She is the current record holder for ladies in the short program, the free skating and the combined total under the ISU Judging System. She is also the first female skater to surpass the 150-point free skating mark and the 200-point total mark under the ISU Judging System. From Wikipedia

SHE is the only skater that has the command on the ice. With her unique artistry and flawless technique, Queen YU-NA opened a new era for this sport. She's totally different from other skaters. Just marvelous and amazing. As an artist, I can say that yuna 's programs have been the only things that deserved to be called 'the art on the ice'.

I think Yuna Kim's one of the most best figure skater in figure skating history. She has incredible speed and quality, with gorgeous artistry. Her program is flawless and delicate. She gets better everyday. It's such a joy to watch her skating. I'm sure that she will be remembered as a legendary skater.

We all know KIM as a sensational skater and the "immortal champion", she has the star quality and the personality, athleticability, artistry. What she doesn't have!

2010 Olympic Champion and 2009, 2013 World Champion.

Yuna Kim is the best skater of the COP era, and came to represent the best of the COP because of the quality of everything she does. Without a doubt, the best and most balanced artistic and athletic skater of all time.

Oh common people she has the world record. She has been in the top 3 since 2007 world figure skating championships. She is the winner of world figure skating championship 2013. What more you want? She has to bee in top 10.

She's skating is very beautiful and artful and natural. Above all she's skating is a feeling story about impression. She's mind is kind and hope and the best.

Yuna is the most sensational skater I have ever seen in my life. Her High and pristine jumps are so high, and her interperating and skating skill is so wonderful that I am so absorbed in her performance even now when I watch her performance on YouTube

Yuna Kim NEVER was off the podium. In her 40 competitions along 12 years, she won 30 gold medals, 7 silver and 3 bronze. Her safety, accuracy, fluency and artistic beauty is unsurpassed.

Most graceful skater. She combine both artistically and physically. She has the most beautiful and solid techniques which we can not see from any other female skaters.

I think Yuna is the best forever! I don't care about her record or medals. I just see her feeling when she skates on the ice. It's absolutely amazing. Her face and her movements are similar to a bird flying freely in the sky!

It's the way that she could hold the arena's attention with her well put together programs that showcased her athletic ability and artistry. Exactly what you want in figure skating.

She is very good in her tricks and has nice songs.

She's the absolute best. The goddess of Figure Skating. Everything from her technique to her creativity in her performance, is sheer perfection.
