‘Figure Queen’ Skating Yuna Kim revealed new skating program for this coming Olympic season.
Earlier today, August 26, Yuna Kim’s agency All ‘That Sports’ announced her now skating programs: ‘Send in the Clowns’ for the short program and ‘Adios Nonino’ for the free skating program, both of which are the work of David Wilson, Kim’s choreographer who has worked with her for 7 years.
The song for Kim’s Short program ‘Send in the Clowns’ is composed by America’s great musical composer ‘Stephen Sondheim’ and is widely known as a title song for hit musical ‘A Little Night Music.’ The world is now focusing on how Yuna Kim will blend her movement to the song’s romantic, sad mood.
Yuna Kim chose tango song, ‘Adios Nonino’ for her free skating program. ‘Adios Nonino’ is a work of Asto Piazolla, master of Tango in Argentina. Since released in 1958, the song has been orchestrated in many different versions by composers from all around the world. The song is a tango song that delivers passion and sadness.
This is the second time that the 23-year-old skater shoes a tango song for competition program. Kim surprised the world as beautifully performing ‘El Tango De Roxanne’ on her senior debut stage; she was 16 back then.
During the interview, Yuna Kim explained why she chose those two songs. About her short program song ‘Send in the Clowns,’ she said, “The song is sung by a woman who misses her lover who left. At the first time I heard it, I wanted to perform with this song sometimes.”
“Free skating program song ‘Adios Nonino’ is a powerful tango song that is opposite to the short program song. It is very famous song and one of my favorites. It was the hardest program I’ve ever tried but I’m very satisfied with the result,” Kim added.
The Olympic champion also said, “This is my last competition program as a player, and I’m so happy that I chose the song that I’ve always wanted to do. I’ll try my best to show as great performance as fans are expecting from me.”
Meanwhile, Yuna Kim is now preparing for the new season and will be competing in 2014 Sochi Olympics and retire as a player.

Ki Sung Yueng Frustrated and Tired Of Warming The Bench For Swansea City

Ki Sung-yueng is believed to be looking for a new club as he is growing tired of warming the bench for Swansea City in the English Premier League, the team he joined after parting ways with Scottish powerhouse Celtic in August last year.

He was apparently frustrated once again at not being part of Swansea’s 5-1 demolition of Romania’s Petrolul Ploiesti during their recent UEFA Champions League playoff game.

WalesOnline reported that Ki had “slipped down the pecking order” after coach Michael Laudrup acquired Jonjo Shelvey and José Cañas this summer. It added that Ki may be heading to rival EPL outfit Sunderland on a one-year loan deal, where he would join compatriot Ji Dong-won.

However, with only a few days remaining before the summer transfer window closes, Ki must move fast if he hopes to spend a more productive season in either the EPL or German Bundesliga.

Ki played 38 games for Swansea last season — 29 in the Premier League, two in the FA Cup and seven in the League Cup. After he joined the club for 6 million pounds, the largest transfer fee ever recorded for a Korean player, he soon established himself as a defensive midfielder who posed a constant threat with his free kicks and corner kicks.

But after Laudrup guided the club to win the League Cup last season, he announced that he would be making a significant overhaul, and subsequently brought in new midfielders including Shelvey from Liverpool and Cañas from Real Betis.

Ki has been in the doghouse since the start of the season. He was brought on to replace Cañas in the 77th minute of the club’s Premier League opener against Manchester United on Aug. 18, and reportedly had a falling out with the coach in the process.

In an interview with British media on the same day, the coach said that Ki must fight to secure his place in the midfield amid fierce competition.
