Congratulations to Kim Yu-na on regaining her world figure-skating championship title in effortless style. Sadly, her next big contest, at the Sochi Winter Olympics, will be her last.

“The reigning Olympic champion looked as if she’d never been away, with an exquisite and elegant performance that left the audience spellbound. The crowd was on its feet long before she finished her final spin, and Kim clapped a hand to her mouth as she looked around the arena. That she’d won wasn’t a question, but rather by how much.

With a score of 218.31, she was more than 20 points ahead of defending champion Carolina Kostner. Japan’s Mao Asada was third.”
