I wish everyone who roots for me a happy (Chuseok) holiday.
Figure skating sensation Kim Yu-na yesterday sent her best wishes to her fans while training in Canada for the International Skating Union`s Grand Prix of Figure Skating series.
Her management agency IB Sports quoted her as saying, I`ve completely recovered from last years injury. And the pain in my hips and waist are gone. I will try to stay in good condition for the first competition at the end of October.
Kim is preparing her new free skating program. I am doing my best to make a perfect program. I`ve completed 85 percent of it, she said.
Im in good condition and the background music is also the one I`ve long wanted to perform to. So right now, I`m highly motivated to work on the new program.
The new background piece is Scheherazade. Though many skaters have used this music, I don`t mind. I will make people think about me when they hear Scheherazade, she said.
Kim, who will attend university next year, applied to Korea University in Seoul Tuesday online. I will miss high school but at the same time, I`m looking forward to college life, though it hasn`t hit me yet.
On what she does when not training, she said, I often go to karaoke to sing Korean pop songs and decorate my mini homepage to relieve stress.
