Yuna Kim: About 90 percent of my career was hardship

Yuna Kim



Retired 2010 Olympic champion figure skater Yuna Kim reportedly said nearly 90 percent of her career “was filled with hardship and struggle” during a 12-minute question-and-answer session at the Doha Goals Forum in Los Angeles on Monday.

“But a few moments of happiness, which came after great achievement, kept me motivated and enabled me to try even harder,” Kim said, according to the Chosun Ilbo.
