Kwan, Kim Pair To Promote 2013 PyeongChang Special Olympics

South Korean Olympic figure skater Kim Yu-na and "America’s most-decorated skater" Michelle Kwan stood together Thursday to promote the 2013 PyeongChang Special Olympics World Winter Games. The Games will be held at Korea’s "winter sports hub," PyeongChang, and will feature seven sports and 59 sub-events. With the motto, “Together we can,” 3,300 athletes and coaches from 113 countries are expected to participate (KOREA TIMES, 6/21). Kim said, "Nothing is determined yet on an ice show (for the closing ceremony) featuring Kwan and me, but I am positive about it." She added, "If I am with Michelle Kwan (in an ice show) for other Olympians, it will be an unforgettable experience." Kwan said, "I have enjoyed performing with Yuna. I hope to do it again. I have to be honest, I have not skated since the last ice show with Kim. My blade is rusty" (KOREA HERALD, 6/21).
