Song and winter sport

This video shows South Korean skater, Kim Yu-Na performing an exhibition exercise from the program Scheherazade. The song is by Tori Amos, maybe more well-known as part of Alfonso Cuaron's film original soundtrack, Great Expectations, a modern adaptation from the classic written by Charles Dickens. Kim Yu-Na is one of ice-skating hopes of these next Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver. Although she was born in Bucheon (South Korea), she moved to Toronto (Canada)to go on training at the highest level. She is the 2009 World champion, the 2009 Four Continents champion, a three-time Grand Prix Final champion(2006–2007, 2007–2008, 2009–2010),the 2006 World Junior champion, the 2005-2006 Junior Grand Prix Final champion and a four-time (2002–2005) South Korean national champion. These figures are taken from Wikipedia, but it's for sure there will be more history to be written soon. Good luck for Vancouver Olympics!
