The Sochi Olympic Winter Games are right around the corner, and there is high anticipation for the games. Former coach of Olympic figure skater Kim Yu-na, Brian Orser, stated that it’s now Mao Asada’s turn to win the gold.
Asada carries a powerful triple axel that she hopes will help her bring home the gold, and Orser has much faith in her. Orser coached Kim for about 4 years, and parted ways after the 2010 games.
A telephone pole of slightly over 1,000 people stated that Korea will place within the top 10 gold medal tally this year. Around 81% of respondents stated the above, while 63% said that Kim will defend her title, and 33% said that Korea will bring home at least 1 gold in speed skating. A final 25% indicated that Korea will also bring home at least 1 gold medal for short track skating.
