Figure skating champion Kim Yu-na has denied rumors of her impending marriage. Her management agency All That Sports in a statement on Thursday said, "Rumors are spreading that Kim Yun-a will get married soon and are being treated by media outlets as credible, but they are absolutely false."
According to All That Sports, men purporting to be Kim's boyfriend sent e-mails and letters to the agency this year claiming to be in a serious relationship with Kim or that they had already been legally married. More recently, some men even tried to meet Kim, while one of them even claimed to be raising a daughter he fathered with her.
The management agency said the rumors were not only absurd but apparently designed to harm the athlete, and vowed to take legal measures to deal with them.
Kim is to perform in the "All That Skate Summer 2012" ice show at the Olympic Gymnastics Arena starting on Aug. 24.
