Kim, Kwan team up for skating duet in South Korea
GOYANG, South Korea — Olympic gold medalist Kim Yu-na says she is excited to skate again with her childhood idol, five-time world champion Michelle Kwan.
Kwan is back in South Korea for the third time in less than a year to join Kim, known at home as “Queen Yu-na,” for the “All That Skate” show, which opens Friday in Goyang, north of Seoul.
“We’re having a blast!” Kwan told reporters Thursday during a break from rehearsal. “I’m having a great time skating with Yu-na.”
They’ll be joined by a raft of Olympic medalists, including American Sasha Cohen, pairs skaters Aliona Savchenko and Robin Szolkowy of Germany, and ice dancers Tanith Belbin and Benjamin Agosto of the United States.
