World Figure Skating Championships: Yu-Na Kim Leads After Short Program

The womens competition was centered around the rivalry between Korea’s Yu-Na Kim and Japan’s Mao Asada, but while Asada faultered in her short program, Kim was simply brilliant. Asada turned a triple lutz into a double and as a result, she finds herself in third place and over ten points behind Kim. Canada’s Joannie Rochette is in second place after the short program.

Yu-Na Kim, however, brought the house down with her short program, which was to “Danse Macabre.” She beautifully mixed artistry with difficulty and finished the night with a world record score of 76.12.

Leaderboard: After the Short Program

1) Yu-Na Kim –76.12 (KOR)

2) Joannie Rochette –67.90 (CAN)

3) Mao Asada –66.06 (JPN)

4) Miki Ando –64.12 (JPN)

5) Carolina Kostner –63.18 (ITA)
