Korean figure skating superstar Kim Yu-na is eyeing the gold medal at the 2009 International Skating Union Grand Prix Final, the last major international competition of the year, to be held in Tokyo on Friday and Saturday.
Kim, who has won every competition she entered this year, will skate last in the short program starting at 7.40 p.m. Korean time on Friday, to a medley of music from James Bond films.
She will face five other challengers: Canada's Joannie Rochette, Miki Ando and Akiko Suzuki from Japan, Ashley Wagner of the U.S., and Russia's Alena Leonova.
The competition will be broadcast live by SBS.
